TEENS DUMP SOFA ON BEACH AT RYDE BEFORE SETTING IT ON FIRE

Published:

Firefighters were called out to the Esplanade at Ryde after 3 older teenagers dumped a sofa on the beach before then setting it on fire earlier this afternoon (Sunday).

1 fire appliance from Ryde was mobilised to the west of Ryde Pier at 13:55 following calls of concern from members of the public.

The single crew spent just under 30 minutes on scene using buckets of sea water to extinguish the malicious blaze.

Island Echo readers snapped the irresponsible trio – 2 boys and 1 girl – carrying the sofa along the beach ahead of the fire being started.

Although no one was injured in the incident, the fire resulted in tying up resources from the Isle of Wight Fire and Rescue Service and has left a charred debris at the coast.

I hope the picture evidence is enough to catch them and fine them all for fly tipping, contamination of the sea and wasting our fire fighters time.

I agree Mr G and the charges are all separate and the parents should be the one to pay.

Publish the pictures so they can be identified to the Police
Hit them with a hefty find for fly tipping
Plus any other offences.
This moronic behaviour is not acceptable

No doubt the full force of the law will come down on them, and they’ll be given vouchers for a new sofa.

Hi, it’s the Real truth hear, this is the second time you have used my name on the Echo, it’s very confusing for all of us.

My original comment referring to this news item saying these kids may even hold down a lob one day was me, the real truth.

So why are you using my name to voice your comments???

By the way, I do agree with your posted comments, but it’s very confusing using my name. If we all do that, we will all call each insulting names.

Little $hits. Giving all the good people of their age group a bad name. I say to their peers, grass them up, they are directly making your life hard because people will paint entire age group by the brush of a few.

A good test for the council’s new Anti Fly Tipping Department.
Makes me wonder why they burnt it, unless it’s contaminated with something suspicious ??

A bit big for teens, probably 20s. Must have driven there also. Then walked. So CCTV in the car park? Then, this takes a plan, so why not the tip? How many A levels there? What a waste of time and money!

I recognise the one with the pixlated face. they seem to be responsible for a lot of the youth crime on the Island. There can’t be too many people with pixelated faces so they should be easy to find.
