A CAMPERVAN was damaged in what firefighters believe was a 'deliberate' incident.

Two fire crews from Sherbourne were called to Templecombe at around 10.20pm last night (July 28) to reports of a fire.

On scene, they found a Renault Master campervan on fire, according to a Devon and Somerset Fire and Rescue Service spokesperson.

"Crews extinguished the fire using two breathing apparatus, one hose reel jet and a thermal imagining camera," they added.

"Police were requested to attend this incident as the cause was believed to be deliberate."
