WE thought we would go for a little walk on Friday morning. So we headed down to Fairfield Avenue in Blackshots, cut across the fields and discovered the seat of the fire that produces clouds of black smoke across Thurrock on Sunday, Monday and Tuesday.
As you can see there is a large charred area. You can also see there are plenty more tyres that could be set alight. There are also two burned out cars.
What should be a Thurrock beauty spot is instead a hub for fly-tipping, crime and anti-social behaviour.
On Tuesday afternoon, we asked Thurrock Council a number of questions regarding the arson attacks and the land. We have still yet to receive a replay.
