A SPATE of bin fires are being investigated.

The fires were reported in various locations in Buckland including Seymour Close at 7.39pm, Mayo Close at 7.48pm and Wimpole Street at 8.01pm last night.

All three fires were either in bins or bin sheds.

The fires are all believed to have been started deliberately and are being linked.

An investigation will begin by police and fire investigation officers this morning.
