Police put out bin fire problem

Police in Bridlington believe they have got to the bottom of a spate of wheelie bin fires in the Gypsey Road and West Hill areas of town.

PCSO Andrea Humphrey said that she had reviewed CCTV footage to get to the bottom of who was starting the fires - at least half a dozen in the past month.

She identified a group of youths, two boys and two girls, pulling a wheelie bin across Gypsey Road.

PCSO Humphrey said she then spoke to the youths and a number of adults about the incidents, and since then, they have stopped.
