A RUBBISH fire was started deliberately in Billericay this afternoon.

The ten-tonne pile of rubbish was 'well alight' when officers arrived in Oak Lane, in Crays Hill, shortly before 5pm.

Two units from Basildon, one from Billericay, two from Brentwood, one from Wickford, and a Chelmsford Water Bowser.

The blaze was extinguished by 5.45pm.

Officers later described the cause of the fire as deliberate.

Does get rid of it though, a result which would probably have occurred anyway, had they paid enough money, which brings into question the morals of waste disposal, in this manner.

We're into the school holidays and there have been a lot of fires today.
Coincidence?

Really can't imagine. Let me think.

But it's not an offence if it's the owner that is doing it remember? That's what the police said about the caravans.

And seven units of Fire Brigade were called out - obviously leaving the emergency service short of manpower should further incidents occur.

Typical of the Oak Lane mob. All self, self, self.

Possibly, but a proper incinerator would not dump as much poison into the air. And who knows what these people are including in the fire that really should not be burned.

The inhabitants of Oak Lane don't recognise school holidays, largely because they don't recognise the school term dates either. As you should know.

The latest fad is the burning of those wheeled bins, often seen below flats....

Are you saying setting fire to 10 tonnes of rubbish is not an offense if you own it? can you cite any laws/statutes that says that?

You feel all the people who reside on Oak Lane are a mob?

More lies and spin presented as fact...Oak lane is a long lane..you are nothing but a generalising dope..Its my opinion that you would never pass vetting now to be around children, do you disagree?

And what is a non-political councillor..why do you not answer this question?
