A deliberate fire destroyed a van in a cul-de-sac.
Flames engulfed the Ford Transit vehicle, which was set alight at 3am this morning on Stuteley Grove in Bradley.
Shocked residents awoke to find the blaze outside their homes, which completely gutted the van’s engine and passenger and driver areas.
Steve Mosley, Rastrick watch commander, said: “We are treating the fire as deliberate and have passed on details about the incident to the police.
“Fortunately no one was hurt.”
