MARCH: Arsonists target shed containing gas cylinders

Valentine’s Day almost went off with a bang after a shed containing two LPG containers was set alight in March.

Arsonists targeted the shed in Creek Road yesterday afternoon (Thursday).

One crew from March and one crew from Chatteris were called to the fire at 4.30pm and used one hose jet to extinguish the fire. They returned to their stations by 8.40pm.

The cause is believed to be deliberate. Anyone with information should call police on 101 or Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555111.
