at least we get a photo of the actual car, as opposed to the usual generic fire engine.

A terrible disaster in a 'new estate'. Just shows the type of mentality of some individuals in the area. It is a tragic shame and mirrors our broken society. Fortunately, for once, the bad press is not revolving around Greenstead. It is an inexcusable criminal act and potentially life-threatening. Thank God no one was injured!

Hardly surprising this has happened. That estate is full of benefit spongers and lay abouts, only a matter of time before it happens on a daily basis.
