TWO sheds were destroyed after being set alight on Hartlepool allotments.

Crews from Stranton and the Headland fire stations were called to the Elmwood Road site at Thornhill Gardens around 9pm last night.

The sheds, which were on two different plots, were both well alight and crews were on the scene for 45 minutes.

A fire brigade spokesman said both sheds were burnt down, but luckily there was no-one or any animals in either of them.
