Police have renewed their appeal for information about a suspicious fire which destroyed garage premises in Dumfries.

The blaze at Howgate Street on Monday 7 November took more than 30 firefighters to bring under control.

Det Sgt Hugh McCombe said the incident was being treated as an "act of wilful fire-raising".

He said they were keen to speak to anyone who may have seen a lime green Vauxhaull Corsa stolen from the garage.

"This is a live criminal inquiry.

"Whatever information, no matter how insignificant you might feel it is, please contact the police."
