Arsonists target Bexley Charity van

A minibus helping schoolchildren and disabled people get about has been set alight in Dartford very close to Crayford.

A Mercedes minibus worth £70,000 is a wreck after the attack.

The charity Bexley Accessible Transport Scheme “operate a membership-only scheme, and our services are aimed at those with mobility needs, of all ages, and those with learning difficulties. We also provide transport for community and voluntary groups, Care Trusts, Social Services and SEN Schools.”

If anyone saw anything contact police on 101 or call Kent Police on 01474 366149 and quote reference number 46/137678/19.

You can also support the charity by visiting their webpage here.


As a private renter with a young family, the cost of living is extremely high.

Support me and the site via Paypal here which allows me to focus time on researching and writing posts alongside taking photographs to document changes. Adverts are far from enough to cover living costs.

Another option is via my Patreon account by clicking here

I also have a Facebook page for the site here

Thank you

    I was shocked and also very sad to read this article and just cannot believe who would do such a terrible nasty and of cause very dangerous act. Why do this to a charity vehicle that helps the most vulnerable members of our society.

    Why also did they feel they need to target this vehicle and the group of people the service is provided for? I sincerely hope this is a isolated incident.

    Unbelievable. I struggle to understand why people do things like this. They must be severely mentally ill.

    The culprits are sociopaths who lack empathy. You cannot appeal to their better nature because they do not have one.
