The hunt is on to find an arsonist who targeted three vehicles and a tyre store in Alperton and Wembley on Wednesday evening.

The culprit struck between 7.30pm and 8.30pm.

Luckily, a passerby noticed the blaze and alerted him.

He managed to put the fire out by throwing water on the bike before calling the police.
