Two cars have been damaged by fire in Forkhill during the early hours of Friday 11 August.

It appears that flammable liquid had been poured over a Vauxhall Corsa parked in Park Urney and set on fire. A second car that was parked close also caught fire after the first car rolled into it. Both cars sustained extensive damage as a result.

A transit van parked in the area was also broken into and a number of tools stolen.
