Vandals torch bench at crime hotspot


FIRE crews were called out to a park blaze – at a village blighted by anti-social behaviour.

Last month Mastin Moor residents joined forces to crackdown on a rise in crime in their community.

The area had become a hot-spot for underage drinkers, arson attacks, boy racers and drug use.

On Monday at around 7.30pm crews were called out to Lansbury Avenue after a picnic bench was torched by vandals.

Police also attended.

Anyone with information should contact police on 101.
