Firefighters were called out twice in the space of an hour earlier this morning (Monday), to two bin fires, both suspected arsons, in Victoria Park and at a children's playground on the Turnpike estate.

One pump from Newbury fire station was called at 6.10am to a bin fire next to Victoria Park and then again at 7.45am to Turnpike Road, to a fire at a bin in a playground at Claremont Crescent.

Firefighters extinguished the fires with buckets of water.

Both incidents were recorded as suspected arsons by the Royal Berkshire Fire and Rescue Service (RB FRS).
