A fire which broke out at a bus depot in Liskeard this morning is thought to have been caused by arson.

Cornwall Fire and Rescue Service attended a blaze involving three Western Greyhound buses at the Trevecca industrial estate in Liskeard at 4.50am.

Three crews from Liskeard and Callington were sent to the incident.

The cause of the fire is thought to be arson and the incident has been handed over to Devon and Cornwall Police.

Managing director of Western Greyhound, Mark Howarth, told BBC Radio Cornwall that he feared the company might be being targeted.

The bus provider has said that some services from Liskeard may be delayed or subject to alterations today.

    Where do these idiots get on destroying things? They should, if caught, be severely punished, named and shamed and made to pay as much as possible to the victims. What a pity in this day and age where the offender gets more consideration than the victim that they can't be given a dose of the birch.
