Two-day-old Audi torched in car park
A CAR which is believed to have been deliberately set alight in the city centre was only two days old.
The £33,000 Audi A5 was in a car park off a narrow lane which runs behind Nelson Street.
The road was closed off while fire crews dealt with the blaze.
The owner, an insurance broker who declined to give his name, said the car only had about 70 miles on the clock.

"I don't know why anyone would want to do such a thing," he said.
The fire was one of four suspected arson attacks within the space of 90 minutes in the city centre yesterday evening.
A rubbish bin near the Hippodrome was set alight shortly before 6pm, followed by another rubbish bin fire at 6.40pm in Host Street.
After the car was torched, an industrial-sized wheelie bin behind the London Camera Exchange shop in the Horsefair was set alight.
It is understood that a man has been arrested in connection with the offences.
