Arson suspected in Scottish caravans blaze

Oct 17 2012 Posted by Laura Canning

Police in East Lothian have appealed for information after two caravans were gutted in blazes at a caravan park last week.

Firefighters were called to the scene at Aberlady Caravan Park just outside Aberlady village at 1 am last Thursday morning (11 October), after two vans were set alight. However, the caravans had already been destroyed by the time the Lothian and Borders Fire and Rescue Service arrived at the scene.

Police are treating the incidents as arson.

'These fires resulted in several thousand pounds worth of damage,' a police spokesperson said.

'Anyone who was in or around the caravan site in the early hours of yesterday morning and remembers seeing anything suspicious is asked to contact police immediately.'

The incident follows caravan arson in Runcorn recently, when three tourers were set on fire in the town
