FIREBOMB attacks which caused pounds 2m damage on the Isle of Wight yesterday were probably the work of animal rights activists, police said. The attacks stretched the island's fire service to its limits with reinforcements having to be called in from the mainland.

No one was hurt, but the four bombs planted in shops caused severe damage, forced people from their homes and sparked a pollution scare as asbestos sheets at a chemist's shop exploded in the intense heat.
