Police have released a new CCTV image as they continue to investigate several suspected arson attacks at a Wallsend property earlier this year.

Detectives attached to Newcastle City Police District are investigating three separate arson attacks at a home on Metcalfe Street, Wallsend, on Wednesday 24 June, Saturday 18 and Thursday 30 July.
