A LEAMINGTON man has been arrested on suspicion of arson with intent to endanger life and arson.

Officers were looking to speak to 21-year-old Tom Weedon in connection with an arson incident involving two cars, which took place on the Chase Meadow estate around 5am on Saturday.

Crews from Leamington and Kenilworth were sent following several reports of two cars on fire in Yeats Drive.

One car was on the road while another was on the driveway and the fire was understood to be spreading to the house but was put out by firefighters.

An appeal was launched at the weekend and Mr Weedon has since been found and arrested.

A 22-year-old man has also been arrested on suspicion of assisting an offender.

Warwickshire Police would like to thank the media and the public for sharing the appeal.
