A FIRE in a cricket shed is thought to have been started deliberately.

Fire crews were called to the blaze in a brick building used to store cricket equipment, in Lake Meadows Park, Billericay, at 8pm on Friday night.

Crews managed to get the flames under control in about 30 minutes.

No one was injured.

A joint Police and Fire Service investigation will be carried out to establish the cause, which is thought to be deliberate.
