Braintree: Car torched after keys burgled from home
8:00am Wednesday 5th September 2012 in News
Yobs who stole car keys in a burglary and then torched the car in a newly opened skatepark have been branded disgusting.
They drove the Volkswagen Polo around the skatebowl, off Meadowside in Braintree, before setting fire to it at about 3am on Tuesday.
It is expected to cost thousands of pounds to remove the burnt out car and repair the damage to the skatepark, which was only officially opened two weeks ago.
Braintree councillor Moia Thorogood, who has been involved with the skatebowl project, believes no one who uses it will be involved in the fire.
She said: “It is disgusting.
“It is a waste of money and it could have been someone’s life."
