POLICE are appealing for witnesses after a van was set alight deliberately at Cwn y Glo, near Caernarfon.

The Ford Transit van was reported to be on fire at about 7.10pm, on Sunday, December 2.

PC Jamie Atkinson said: “A person was seen setting fire to the vehicle and leaving the area on foot. This person has potentially injured themselves during the incident as it is believed their clothing caught fire.”

“We are appealing for witnesses; especially a couple who were walking their dog at the time who apparently saw the incident unfold.”
