TWO people have been arrested on suspicion of torching cars near to UHCW.

Police officers have appealed to the public for witnesses to the arson attacks at around 6.30am on January 13, on Hall Lane, Walsgrave.

They say two cars were set on fire, and police have since arrested two people who are being questioned in custody.

Detectives at West Midlands Police said: “We are appealing for anyone who was in the area at the time and saw what happened to get in touch.

“We believe there would have been lots of people in the area when the cars were set on fire because Hall Lane is close to University Hospital Coventry and Warwickshire and many people use the road as a short cut.

“Anyone with information can get in touch via Live Chat between 8am and midnight, or call 101 anytime.

“To remain anonymous please call Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111. Tell them what you know, not who you are. Please quote crime number 20CV/10905C/20.”
