Trailer destroyed

ARSONISTS are being blamed after a horse trailer was destroyed by fire.

Crews from Peterlee Fire Station were called to Market Crescent, in Wingate, after reports that a horse trailer on an allotment site had been set alight.

The trailer was empty at the time and the allotment site was away from houses.

Firefighters, who spent half an hour at the scene shortly before midnight on Tuesday, are treating it as suspicious.
