Police probe 'deliberate' van fire in Brent Knoll

This van was deliberately set on fire in a quiet country lane near Brent Knoll during the early hours of Wednesday morning (February 4th).

One fire engine from Burnham-On-Sea was sent to Wick Road at 4.45am where they found the scorched van in a laybay.

"The crews confirmed the van was well alight and got to work extinguishing it with one hose reel jet," fire spokesman Paul Slavin told "This fire was started deliberately."

Police are investigating whether the van had been stolen.
