An investigation is under way after a police car was set alight outside the Lyttelton police station early today.

A Fire Service spokesman said they were called to the Sumner Rd station about 2am.

Two fire trucks were sent and the car was "well ablaze" when they got there.

The fire is being treated as suspicious.

Fire safety officers would meet police this morning to investigate the incident further, he said.

A police spokesman said a car next to the burnt one had also been badly damaged because of the heat of the fire.
