Luxury high-powered cars worth £615,000 (€850,000) have gone up in smoke after a suspected arson attack on a limo hire company in England.

Pictures of the smoke-blackened wreckage of a metallic orange Lamborghini Huracan supercar and a silver Rolls-Royce Phantom recorded the destruction.

The cars, thought to be worth £205,000 and £150,000 respectively, were destroyed along with a £260,000 Rolls Royce Ghost.

West Midlands Fire and Rescue Service, which posted the images on social media, said a joint fire and police investigation was under way after the blaze in Birmingham.
