A VAN was destroyed in a fire in Harrogate on Thursday evening.

Firefighters were called to St Andrew’s Avenue just after 5pm where they found the vehicle well alight.

Initial reports that someone was inside the van were unfounded, but there were several petrol containers on board.

Crews brought the fire under control within half an hour. Nobody was injured and the fire is not being treated as suspicious.
