​Police are ​probing a suspected arson attack on a car which spread to nearby garages.

Firefighters were called to ​Hawkhurst Road, Preston, at around 5am today.

A car had been set alight and a Preston fire crew worked to extinguish the blaze and stop it from badly damaging two nearby garages.

At around the same time, there were fires outside a shop in nearby Castleton Road and in bins in Falcon Street. One theory is that they may be connected.

Police are investigating.
