VIDEO: Suspected joyriders torch van in Peterborough '˜anti-social behaviour haven'
Suspected joyriders crashed this van in Peterborough last night before setting it on fire.
A fire crew from Stanground was called to the van arson in Potters Way close to the A1139 Frank Perkins Way Southbound carriageway at 6.39pm.
An eyewitness told the Peterborough Telegraph: “It had been joy ridden around the car park I was told before crashing. The car park was littered with what looked like rat poison and traps. Looked as if the van was from a pest controller.
“It’s quite risky using that car park now it’s a haven for antisocial behaviour and needs closing.”
Firefighters wearing breathing apparatus used a hose reel to extinguish the fire and returned to their station by 7.50pm.
Anyone with information should contact police on 101 or call Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.
