A BMX track in Andover was set on fire over the weekend.

Crews from Andover fire station were called at 7.41pm on Sunday, August 9, to the track just off West Portway.

A message from the station read; "We know lots of good sensible people use this track in Andover and the surrounding villages, but it only takes one or two to ruin it for everyone.

"Someone or some people thought it would be a good idea to start a fire up there.

"We all make bad decision in life but if the person/s responsible for this is reading this, our message to you is 'with fire being the outcome it is a never good decision, so please stop and think'."
