Fire in Avon lock

Published: Friday, 06 November 2009

FIRE crews were called out to a boat on fire near Strensham Lock on the Avon yesterday (Thursday).

A medium sized cruiser was well alight on the river, and fire crews from Evesham, Pershore, Upton and Worcester attended the incident in the early evening.

Both the Environment Agency and West Mercia Police were also called, but no report has yet been issued, though no one was injured though the fire took the crews about two hours to put out.
