Firefighters joined the clean-up operation at the site of an arson attack that left a Clevedon group devastated.

Two crews of volunteers from Clevedon Fire Station visited the town's Men's Shed, in Princes Road, on Saturday (May 7) to help clear the site, which was targeted by arsonists overnight between April 19 and 20.

A spokesperson for the station said: "We sent two crews of volunteers to Clevedon Men's Shed to help clear up after a fire we attended there last month.

"Their team is raising funds to rebuild and you can support them."
