A moped was deliberately set alight in St Albans last night (May 25).

Firefighters from St Albans were called to the playing field in Park View at about 11.15pm to deal with the blaze, which at that time had been alight for about five minutes.

Although it only took a further five minutes and one hosereel to extinguish the flames, only the frame of the bike was left standing.

The moped is believed to have been stolen.
