Boy charged over police cars fire

A 14-year-old boy has been charged with wilful fire-raising after two police cars were set alight in Edinburgh.

The marked vehicles were completely destroyed by the fires, which happened in Niddrie House Park on Monday evening.

The cars had been left unattended in the street, in the Craigmillar area, as officers dealt with an incident.

The youth will now be reported to the Children's Reporter.
