Man released on bail after 'targeted' A41 van fire
A man arrested on suspicion of attempted murder has been released on bail after a van carrying gas cylinders was set alight with the driver inside.
Thames Valley Police said the "targeted attack" happened at about 23:00 BST on Monday in a lay-by on the A41 Aston Clinton bypass near Aylesbury.
The driver, 47, escaped and was not seriously injured despite the acetylene tanks exploding during the blaze.
A man, 42, from Tring, Hertfordshire, has been bailed until September.
Det Sgt Simon Johnson, said: "I would like to reassure the community that we believe this was a targeted attack on the 47-year-old victim."
The driver of the Mercedes Sprinter van, who was taken to hospital as a precaution, later tweeted his gratitude to Buckinghamshire Fire and Rescue Service.
"Many thanks to the brave emergency services for their help in keeping me safe. #heroes," he wrote.
