GOSPORT firefighters were called out last night to two separate cases of youngsters setting fire to Trinity Green.

As well as setting fire to the grass a number of bins were also set alight.

One fire engine was deployed to the scene at 7.20pm, and returned at 8pm.

A firefighter who was involved in both call outs said: ‘There is only one fire engine available in Gosport and having to deal with such incidents means we could potentially not be available to tackle a house or building fire which will put people’s lives in danger.’
