Liverpool arsonists in spate of wheelie-bin attacks
Liverpool fire services have warned the public to hide their wheelie bins following a spike in Arson attacks.
The call comes after 6 sites were targeted in just 4 days at a number of locations across Merseyside.
This latest burst of arson attacks saw firefighters called out called out to Fazakerley, Thornton, Kirkby, Toxteth, Cosby and Leasowe to tackle blazes.
Now there are fears that this spate of arson attacks could pose a danger to life.
Speaking about the recent rise in arson attacks across Merseyside,Ian Mullen, Arson Reduction Co-ordinator for Merseyside Fire & Rescue Service, said that people should ensure their wheelie bins are stored away from their property, only put out on the day of collection and brought back immediately once emptied.
Hkrge said: “Fires involving wheelie bins can spread to buildings and pose a danger to people who live or work in those properties. If a fire appliance is called out to a deliberate fire, this could also delay the response to other emergencies.
“All fires that we attend are investigated and people should be aware it is a criminal offense to deliberately set fires. We work with the police to identify those responsible for setting fires and if caught they will be prosecuted.”

Service is really good, had many problems in the past with previous suppliers however since been with Business Waste I have not had any problems what so ever. From the start of the agreement the sales team was really helpful and helped with my requirements. I am in a very tricky location with not much room to store a container however I was provided with many options from the sales rep to accommodate my requirements. Customer Service from the staff is outstanding. Definitely recommend 100%.
Great friendly service and really helpful staff!
