Police are appealing for witnesses after two caravans were set ablaze in an apparent fireraising attack in East 
Lothian.

The incident, which took place at Aberlady Caravan Site, is being treated as suspicious.

Two units were found alight and Lothian and Borders Fire and Rescue Service was called out at around 1am on 
Thursday.

Both caravans were 
completely destroyed as a result of the fires, while several others in the surrounding area sustained minor flame damage.

Detectives are urging anyone who can assist with their inquiries to come forward.

A police spokesman said: “Fortunately neither of the caravans were occupied at the time or this could have been a far more serious incident.

“Nevertheless, these fires resulted in several thousand pounds’ worth of damage and we are carrying out local inquiries to identify those responsible.

“Anyone who was in or around the caravan site in the early hours of Thursday morning and remembers seeing anything suspicious is asked to contact police 
immediately.”
