Arson around

Tyre fire in athloneNot to put a dark cloud over things, but there was a suspicious black plume rising over the town on Monday.

Curiosity burning, we approached the scene where a bunch of folks were rubbernecking. The general consensus was that local youths, tyred of the piles of rubbish and, being all fired up from the Easter bank holiday decided to do a bit of arson around.

When people tread on the edge of safety like this, it becomes a wheel problem. Calling attention to the blaze may only fuel the problem, but a hot topic like this is bound to flare up every now and again.

Just punderful.
