A CARAVAN was set alight in Meadowhead Close, Blackburn, in the early hours of Saturday.

Fire crews were called at 2am and said someone had set fire to the seating area.

The inside of the domestic caravan was badly damaged by smoke, heat and fire, and firefighters are treating it as suspicious.

The caravan was empty at the time, and was not thought to be in use, but the owner has yet to be traced.

The police or council are supposed to make sure that unlicensed vehicles are not parked on roads. Caravans and boats or trailers are not permitted to be left on roads or verges unless they are attached to a road legal vehicle. But like everything else they can't be bothered as it costs money. Unless they can fine somebody.........

not true. caravans are totally allowed to be left on the road as long as they are lit. no insurance required as they are not classed as A. a vehicle, B. powered.
