ESSEX Police are investigating following an arson at a mechanics in Roydon.
Two workshops were set alight at Spanners Garage in Sedge Green at about 2.30am on Wednesday 1 July.
Damage was caused to both buildings and nine vehicles were destroyed.
A van was left scorched.
A man has been arrested on suspicion of arson and released on bail until 27 July while the police continue our enquiries.
They are keen to speak to anyone who was in the area at the time and saw anything suspicious or has any dash cam footage or CCTV.
They understand that a man in a grey car spoke to the owners of the garage and asked if they’d called the fire service. We think he could be a key witness and would like to speak to him.
Contact Loughton CID on 101 quoting reference 42/96616/20.
