Search for witnesses after caravan set on fire in Durrington

Police are seeking witnesses to an arson attack on a caravan in Durrington.

A white caravan belonging to a local resident, parked while unoccupied in a layby in Jevington Close, Durrington, was destroyed by fire which started sometime between 12.30am and 12.45am on Sunday (7 January).


PC Dave Slade said; "This had the potential for even more serious consequences if anyone had been sleeping inside at the time. 


"The caravan was totally destroyed in only a short space of time, with gas canisters inside and outside also having the potential to cause further damage to both the caravan and nearby properties. 

"Thankfully the canisters were unaffected.


"A person, of whom there are currently no further details, was seen running away from the caravan when the blaze started to take hold. 


"If you saw what happened or have any information as to who was responsible, please contact us online or call 101, quoting serial 49 of 07/01. 


"Alternatively, call the independent charity Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800
