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.
