The cabman's shelter in Harrogate's Library Gardens

The cabman's shelter in Harrogate's Library Gardens on Victoria Avenue/Station Parade has been hit by a blaze.

Firemen were called last night before midnight to deal with the fire at the 19th century wooden shelter with its distinctive green and white colouring.

If it turns out not to be an accident, it will be the latest in a wave of vandalism, sometimes petty, sometimes not, in Harrogate in recent months.

And it's not the first cabman's shelter in Harrogate town centre damaged this summer.
