Flood alert at derelict Newton Abbot publishers

By Paul James in Emergency Services

POLICE and fire units were called to a derelict property in Newton Abbot after juvenile vandals triggered a flood alert.

Youngsters had broken into the old David and Charles building where they ripped a radiator off a wall.

Their criminal damage caused a leak which firefighters were called out to deal with.

Police were also alerted just after 11am on Saturday. Officers are investigating the matter.
