ARSONISTS torched a motor home in Graveley on Sunday morning (February 24).

Firefighters from Papworth were sent to a bin on fire in Toseland Road shortly before 2am. On arrival they found a motorhome and a garage, measuring 10 by 8ft, in flames and called for back up from St Neots and Huntingdon.

The motorhome contained a gas cylinder so the crews used a ground monitor, a hose fixed to the ground, to cool the cylinder.

A fire investigation showed the cause of fire was deliberate and a spokesman for the fire service said that the police had been informed.

The crews returned to their bases by 4.35am.
