Arson in Glastonbury
In the early hours of the morning last Wednesday, 5 August a caravan was set alight in Glastonbury. The incident happened between 2.30 and 3.00am and Police suspect this was an arson attack.
The caravan was parked off Roman Way, Glastonbury. A group of youths were seen running off towards the A39 in the direction of Street shortly after the incident.
The occupant, a 45-year-old man, was inside the caravan at the time. Fortunately he was able to extinguish the fire before it caused major damage. Thankfully, he was unharmed.
Speaking for Avon & Somerset Police, PC Andy Goldsmith noted “This incident follows another caravan fire in the same location which happened the previous night, which is currently being treated as unexplained. It is not yet known whether the two incidents are linked. This is however a concern, and we would ask anybody who witnessed the incident, was in the area at the time or noticed a group of people acting suspiciously to call 101 quoting reference 5220174964.”
