A taxi in Sunderland has been completely destroyed during an arson attack which was caught on CCTV.

The cab firm which the driver of the vehicle works with is now asking for help to find the perpetrator.

The vehicle was torched during the early hours of Sunday 21 February while parked outside a property in Carlton Crescent, East Herrington.

A spokesperson for Station Taxis has said: "Unfortunately one of our driver's vehicles was set on fire at the weekend outside of his home.

"This happened at around 4:25am on Saturday morning at Carlton Crescent, East Herrington.

"If anyone has any information, please call the Police on 101. Alternatively, it would really help if you can share this post.

"This was a white Station Taxi which this driver used for work every day. Our drivers are self-employed and are working very hard to earn a living throughout the pandemic as it is, without having something horrible like this happen!

"Taxis really are a lifeline for some people right now. Especially those on the frontline who need to get to work, also people who are isolating and may need a taxi for essentials, medical deliveries, doctors or vaccine appointments.

“It is a shame that someone could be so inconsiderate and totally disregard this, without thinking of the consequences this could have for our driver."

The firm has said they hope the Facebook post will help spread the word and catch the person that did this.
