Not a new thing, alas ...

What desperately sad news.  Shocking that someone thinks this is a good thing to do.

Ten buses 'deliberately' set on fire in Bristol

Firefighters battled to put out six double decker buses and four single buses in Bristol last night.

Crews from Temple and Bedminster were called to a bus depot on Kingsland Road in St Phillips.

Is this the spot just to the south of the railway where you can (or could) see a disparate selection of buses parked up as you approach Temple Meads from Keynsham?

Yes that's the one, on the left as the lines bends into Temple Meads
Many of aBuses are old outdated buses that at best were ready for a museum, some were new, but still sad to see as the guy who runs it has put many hours of graft into getting the bus company recognised in and around Bristol
