3.40pm: Police have released a CCTV image of two men they want to question after a series of fires were started in Stamford town centre this morning (Wednesday).
Shopkeepers turned up to work this morning to find scorch marks and broken windows after fires were started outside their stores.
Several shops in Stamford town centre were targeted, including Timpson in High Street, Hambleton Bakery in Ironmonger Street and the Fine Food Store and You and Beyond in St Mary’s Street.
Police are looking at CCTV footage from last night but believe bags of rubbish left outside may have been set alight.
All the shops are open for business as usual, although the front window of Timpson has cracked as a result of the fire.
Police have appealed for witnesses. If you saw anything call 101 quoting incident 10 of April 17.
