Cambridgeshire Fire and Rescue Service have lent their weight to appeals by the RSPCA and Country Land and Business Association (CLA) for the sky lanterns to be prohibited in the county by local authorities.


THE COUNTY'S Chief Fire Officer has called for an urgent review of sky lanterns following a devastating blaze at a caravan park.

The fire at Croft Farm Leisure Park in Bredons Hardwick last month destroyed more than 80 towing caravans and mobile homes in storage, but firefighters managed to stop the flames spreading to a 2,000-litre fuel storage tank.
