Lorry destroyed in 'suspicious' depot fire in Cheltenham

A fire which destroyed a lorry and badly damaged 20 wheelie bins on an industrial estate in Cheltenham is being treated as suspicious.

Fire crews were called to Lansdown Industrial Estate in the early hours of Monday, following numerous 999 calls.

A Gloucestershire Police spokesman said officers were treating the blaze as suspicious and appealed for information.

No-one was reported injured during the incident, he added.

A Gloucestershire Fire and Rescue Service spokeswoman said an industrial unit and four shipping containers were also damaged in the blaze.

"Three fire engines and a water carrier from Cheltenham were sent to the incident and firefighters were detained for three hours," she said.
