A suspected arson attack on a family home in Camelford sparks an urgent appeal for clues.

Police think burning materials found outside on Fore Street are signs of a deliberate attempt to set the house on fire.

Owner Adam Wallbank woke up yesterday morning to find plastering liquid poured down the stairs and a lit pot of cement outside.

His partner and their seven year old daughter were asleep.

The materials were lying around because the house is being renovated.

In a statement, Detective Constable Grant Mills said, "Thankfully, the fire did not take hold or the consequences could have been much more serious for those involved.

"We would urge anyone with information on this incident to come forward".

Adam says, "At first you see the mess and it did take a few minutes to realise just what the intent is on doing something like that. With a little child in the house it just doesn't bare thinking about. It's just beyond the pail that anybody would do anything like that".
