The vehicles were completely destroyed by fire in the early hours of Sunday morning.

Firefighters were called to Moot Lane in the village at around 1.45am yesterday (1st March).

One crew from Salisbury attended and found a Citroen and a Hyundai alight, but nothing could be done to save them.

Wiltshire Police were also called, and believe the fires may have been started deliberately.
