POLICE are appealing for information about three early-morning wheelie bin fires in Chester.
Three teenagers or young men were seen near the bins in Mill Lane, Upton, at about 2.40am on Tuesday, November 23.
Constable Yvonne Graham said this was not simply a stupid prank but was dangerous. She added: “In this case the fire from one of the bins damaged a large conifer, but it is very easy for the flames to spread to houses, putting lives in danger.”
Anyone with information is asked to call police on 0845 458 0000 or Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.
