Volunteers protect St Martin bonfire from vandals

Volunteers slept in a caravan in a field in St Martin in Jersey to make sure Bonfire Night was not ruined by vandals.

Two years ago the bonfire was set alight days before the annual charity event was due to take place.

Last year the authorities monitored the area with CCTV cameras, but vandals targeted two other bonfires at Les Creux and the Farm House.

All profits from the event will be donated to local charities.
