A CARAVAN containing gas cyclinders has been destroyed by fire in St Osyth.

Crews were called to the blaze on a holiday park at 4.20pm today.

A 40m long static caravan with two LPG cyclinders was on fire at Oaklands holiday park.

It took just under an hour to put out the flames. Crews remained at the scene until 7pm damping down the wreckage. 

No-one is thought to have been hurt in the blaze.

The incident was the 10th across the county to take place during today’s strike action by Fire Brigades Union members.
