We are devastated that this has happened...More than 100 caravans have been destroyed and as each has a value of around £10 to £15,000 the overall figure will be around £1million.
I'm thankful that our security guard spotted the fire early and thank the emergency services for their work - we had ten fire engines at the peak of the incident.
