AN ARSONIST set fire to a car which damaged another.

Firefighters and police were called to an incident in Rock Lane, Hastings, in the early hours of Sunday morning to reports of a car fire.

The fire was big enough to damage a neighbouring vehicle.

Crew members from the East Sussex Fire and Rescue Service (ESFRS) managed to get the blaze under control just after 2am.

A spokesman for ESFRS said: “It is believed to be deliberate”

Sussex Police have been informed.
