Police are looking for the owner of a Mercedes which was burnt out on the Isle of Dogs on Monday night.

Officers are investigating the incident at Storer's Quay and are suspecting arson. Fire crews put out the blaze on arrival.

The car is a pink Mercedes-Benz. A police spokesman said: "No suspects were seen but it has been recorded as a crime. The owner or keeper of the car has yet to come forward."

It's a shame that cars don't have some sort of identity or registration mark which would allow the police to identify the owner.
Oh, hang on....
