Vandals blow up bin in early hours

Have your say

Council bosses have hit out at vandals who blew up a dog bin in Bury St Edmunds.

It is understod that explosives were used to destroy the bin, near Raynham Road, shortly after midnight on Friday.

A spokeswoman for St Edmundsbury Borough Council said: “It is disquieting that anyone would want to set off explosives in a public place like this. The bin has been destroyed and we have removed it.

“It is not only abuse of public property that concerns us, it is a matter of public safety. It could have gone horribly wrong and harmed the innocent.”
