Sheddie who saved the day commended

The EADT reports

A CHEMICAL firm worker who discovered his mother’s shed torched by an arsonist prevented a major explosion by dousing a gas canister with water until the emergency services arrived.

Louis Willett, of Chainey Pieces in Haverhill, was yesterday publicly commended at Bury St Edmunds Magistrates’ Court after it emerged how his actions had prevented an explosion in Broad Street, Haverhill.

The incident unfolded on July 28 last year when Mr Willett discovered his mother’s shed had been set on fire by her former boyfriend, Antony Absalom.
