A councillor said she was “saddened” about a car being set on fire in the early hours of the morning in Bradley.

Two suspects were caught on CCTV near a car on Glan Llyn Road in the village before it burst into flames and they ran down the road. Police are now looking to question three people in relation to the arson.

The incident saw two fire engines at the scene at 2.45am this morning with residents hearing a series of “bangs” but many saying they were unaware of the car fire until they checked social media in more sociable hours of the morning.

A spokesperson for North Wales Fire and Rescue Service (NWFRS) said the cause of the fire is arson, and that the blaze caused 100 per cent damage to the vehicle. The fire was extinguished by 3.39am.

The area still smelt like burning rubber at 9am this morning, with the car still in place and the nearby hedge showing signs it had been caught in the flames.

Cllr Tina Mannering of the Gwersyllt East Ward said: “I am saddened to hear of this awful type of crime in our beautiful village. Thankfully no one was injured. 


“This is obviously a matter for North Wales Police to investigate and I will help with enquiries as much as possible. Anyone with any information please contact me in the strictest confidence.”

“It’s terrible,” one resident said, questioning why someone would set fire to the car. The area is said to normally be quiet. 

The incident is now subject to an investigation by North Wales Police and NWFRS. Anyone with any information can contact officers via the website or by calling 101, using reference number 23000547879.
