A BLAZE broke out at derelict theme park Camelot last night.

Fire fighters from Chorley and Bamber Bridge rushed to the abandoned site off Park Hall Road, Charnock Richard at 10.17pm last night (Saturday).

They discovered a thatched roof on one of the outbuildings had been set on fire and they tackled the blaze for an hour and a half.

A spokesman for Chorley fire service said: “We were called out to a fire in one of the outbuildings on the derelict Camelot site.

“The building was four metres by four metres and it was the thatched roof that was on fire.

“It will be difficult to investigate because the site is very insecure.”
