Suffolk Police: Fuel tanker fire may have been started deliberately

A fire which destroyed three fuel tankers on an industrial estate in Suffolk may have been started deliberately, officers have said.

Suffolk Police were called to the scene just before 7pm yesterday.

The three tankers which were on fire contained a total of 35,750 litres of kerosene, gas oil and diesel.

The A1071 road was closed near the Lady Lane junction while firefighters tackled the blaze.

This morning crime scene investigators have been trying to determine the cause of the fire. These enquiries are continuing but the fire is being treated as suspicious.

Anyone with information should call Suffolk Police on 101.
