Two people were seen running away from the scene of a car fire in Stowmarket in the early hours of this morning, police have said.

A member of the public reported to police that a black BMW had been set alight in Ipswich Road, Combs Ford at 00.17am. Police arrived and reported the incident to the fire brigade.

There were no injuries following the blaze, which had been extinguished by 00.37am.

The force spokesman said that two males ran off from the scene. One was seen wearing a “black top” and the other was seen wearing a “grey-hooded top”.

“They possibly got into a silver Vauxhall Astra around the corner,” the force spokesman added.

She said that the vehicle may have travelled in the direction of Great Finborough.

Three fire engines attended the incident; from Needham Market, Stowmarket, and Elmswell, according to the fire brigade.
