Office and cars ‘completely destroyed’ in suspected arson attack

Detectives investigating a suspected arson attack at a car dealership are appealing for witnesses to come forward.

An office building and multiple cars were completely destroyed after the blaze broke out at Lowdham Cars in Lowdham Road, Gunthorpe, shortly after 3am on Sunday (7 August 2022).

No injuries were reported. Enquiries remain ongoing into the incident.

Detective Constable Chloe Baugh, of Nottinghamshire Police, said: “We know there were a few people driving along Lowdham Road around the time of this incident and some people stopped when the fire was just getting started.

“We believe there may still be people with crucial information who have not yet come forward to speak to us. I’m urging them to please get in touch with us as they may have vital information which could help us with our ongoing enquiries.
