Northants Police are looking for a car - seen driving around with a man on the roof - after an arson attack at a farm in Ecton.

It happened sometime between 8-845pm on Tuesday, 9th Aug when the car was seen in convoy with two other cars.

A large bale of hay was deliberately set alight at Eastlodge farm, Ecton, causing around £20,000 worth of damage.

A silver Vauxhall Astra, with a distinctive red bumper and a man on the roof, pictured, was seen to be driving in the area at the time, and officers would like to speak to the owner and or the occupants of the car in connection with the incident.

They would also like to speak with the owner or occupants of two other cars, a white Ford Focus and a dark coloured Mini Cooper, that were also driving in the area at the time and may have information vital to the investigation.

The arson happened close to Sywell Country Park and officers are also keen to speak with anyone who was in the area at the time and may have witnessed anything suspicious.
