In Artists Way, a resident was woken by 3 people talking outside the back off his house, at around 2am. He told Andover & Villages, “I looked out of window and saw them leaning against the wheelie bins opposite. I could see a light in front off them, then they just walked away, and then the bin burst into flames. I was up and rang 999, asking for the Fire Brigade, who told me to leave it alone. Although I did offer the throw a bucket of water onto it, I was told not to, as I did not know what had been put into the bin and that the fire brigade was to deal with it, which they did”.
Christin McNeill, of Galahad Close in Andover, had her car vandalised in August 2014 along with many others in the same area on the same night. The cars appeared to have been hit with a blunt instrument, leaving dents across the body work.
