A PHARMACY in Huntingdon was destroyed in an arson attack on Saturday night.

The fire brigade was called to the Acorn pharmacy in Oak Drive, Sapley, at just after 11pm.

Four fire appliances attended the scene where they battled for more than eight hours to control the blaze, which left the pharmacy devastated.

It is thought the fire originated in a wheelie bin outside the Acorn centre and police have confirmed that the attack is being treated as arson.

One eyewitness told The Hunts Post he had seen a group of youths hanging around the area before the pharmacy went up.

The doctor's surgery at the Acorn Centre is open for business as usual. The nearest outlets offering prescriptions for collection are Tesco's on St Peter's Road and Boots or Sainsbury's in the town centre.
