FIREFIGHTERS were called to a suspected arson attack on a car in Bournemouth this morning.

Crews from Redhill Park were sent to Anchor Road in Bear Cross just before 3.55am.

The car was well alight when the crew arrived and they used two hose reel jets to tackle the blaze, extinguishing it by just after 4.05am.

A spokesperson for Dorset Fire and Rescue said: "It is believed that the fire was started deliberately."
