Police are appealing for information after a car was set alight in a Gravesend road.

At around 10pm a fire crew was called to Cross Road where a Vauxhall Astra was engulfed in flames.

Resident Vadim Ovchinnikov described the scene: “I walked out onto the street and saw a huge fire. The car was completely burned and I saw small explosions. There was the smell of plastic.”

Police are treating the fire as suspicious.

Anyone who has any information is asked to call Kent Police on 101.
