Car blaze: cops suspect foul play

POLICE are appealing for witnesses to come forward after a red BMW was found ablaze in Walter’s Wynd on Tuesday night.

The fire was discovered at around 9.25pm and was extinguised by local firefighters, but foul play is suspected.

A Wilton Hill spokesman told the Hawick News: “It is suspected that the fire was started deliberately and we are appealing for any information regarding this incident.”

Elsewhere, a 22-year old man was arrested on Tuesday and charged with serious assault, robbery and vandalism following a series of incidents in Allars Crescent earlier this month. The man was held in custody for court.
