Police have released CCTV footage following an arson attack in Sutton.

Officers were called at 2.41am on November 3 to reports of a fire in St Nicholas Road.

The Met and LFB attended and found fires had been deliberately lit in several cars in a carpark.

People in the apartment block above the car park had to be evacuated due to the amount of smoke entering the building from the cars.

Three people were treated for smoke inhalation by LAS but none required hospital treatment.

Shortly after 2am, two men who are both being classed as suspects, were seen on CCTV footage entering the car park and then leaving a short time later.
