A 46-year-old man, accused of torching a Ferrari parked in a drive in Emerson Park, is due in court.

Emergency services were called to Nelmes Crescent, Emerson Park, in the early hours of the morning and found a Ferrari on fire.

Mr Mir was charged shortly afterwards, and has made several court appearances.

He indicated his plea would be not guilty on March 27.
