Detectives are hunting these two yobs caught on camera torching three cars in a Northamptonshire village.

The pair were seen pouring petrol over a Ford Fiesta parked on a driveway in Weedon just before 2am this morning (Tuesday) before setting it light.

A luxury Jaguar XF was also destroyed and a Nissan Juke badly damaged before the pair fled — with one of them also setting a trainer on fire.

Security cameras caught the two yobs setting light to cars on a Weedon driveway at 1.49am on Tuesday morning

Firefighters from Northampton and Daventry were called and took more than hour to deal with the blaze.

The two yobs had previously been seen walking streets in Weedon from about midnight.

A spokesman for Northamptonshire Police said: "The incident was captured on the owner's security camera and we are treating this as arson.

"The pair ran off along West Street and we are appealing for anybody who also has security cameras to check their footage from last night to see if these suspects are there."

Two cars were destroyed and another badly damaged in the blaze
