Police probe suspicious caravan fire in Langholm

Police are trying to trace a group of young men seen in the area of a suspicious caravan fire in Langholm.

It follows an incident on waste ground on the town's William Street at about 21:00 on Monday.

Fire crews were called to put out the blaze, but the empty caravan was left badly damaged.

Det Con Lee Smith said they were trying to trace a group of up to four young men seen in the area. All of them were wearing dark clothing.

Two of the men may have been wearing hooded tops with the hoods up.
