Gwen we are fine is a row of tennis courts between us and the fence just that horrible smoke and bits flying, luckily Nath had got my washing in about half an hour ago.

Always happens when the fair and carnival are here and then seems to carry on for a while little fires here and there.

Mindless yobs, hopefully the factory camera will of caught them

Huby just seen neighbour up by garage and he had a morris minor in there which is totally wrecked as well.

As police are now here hes going to ask if it was reported to them see if he can claim I suppose.

Police are parked in tennis court behind us and just asked laddo if he saw anyone running away from the factory.

I hope you are all OK Dawn and nobody hurt.

Silly youngsters don't seem to realise how quickly things can get out of control, not to mention firefighter needing to attend, when there could be an accident or emergency elsewhere.
With so many cutbacks, they can't be everywhere at once.

bl**dy kids set fire to the factory behind us brand new wooden fence, horrible smell and smoke.

Neighbour came out and I asked him if he knew his garage up the road had been set on fire last night and he hadnt been told so hes racing up there now, poor bloke had a motorbike in there and used to have an old car not sure if that was still in there or not.

Had carnival here today and loads of police around and now they have gone the kids have decided its play time again.
