Fire at Coatbridge bus depot 'deliberate' say police

  • 5-11-2011

A massive fire which destroyed 50 buses at a storage depot in North Lanarkshire was started deliberately, police have said.

The blaze was reported at the Greenhill Industrial Estate in Coatbridge at about 0200 BST on Tuesday.

The homes of about 100 nearby residents were evacuated until the fire was brought under control.

Strathclyde Fire and Rescue said it was investigating the "wilful" fire with Strathclyde Police.

Det Insp Bob Frew said: "I would appeal to anyone who was in the area of Greenhill Industrial Estate in Coatbridge between 0130 and 0200 hours yesterday morning who witnessed anything suspicious to come forward to police.

"I would urge anyone with information that may assist our investigation into the fire to contact Coatbridge police office."
