Detective Inspector Nigel Burnell of Harrow CID said:

“These arsons are linked by location and time and the fact that motor vehicles and skips have been targeted.  All eight arsons have happened in the Uxbridge Road area of Harrow Weald and have been reported in the early hours of the morning.

“We are releasing a CCTV image of a man we would like to speak to in connection with one of the arsons.”
