An arsonist set fire to three coaches and damaged a fourth in an attack in a Salford car park.

The coaches were parked at The White Horse pub car park on Eccles Old Road when the attack took place at about 04:00 BST on Saturday.

Police said a man searched a red VW Golf before he went into one of the white Volvo coaches and tried to steal a TV monitor.

He then set the coach alight along with two others.

The blaze spread to a fourth coach.

Police have urged anyone with information to contact them.

They particularly want to trace the driver of a Ford Transit Connect van that passed the pub at the time, as well as a milkman believed to have been working in the area.
