YOUNGSTERS have been accused of setting off a spate of small fires in Bury on Monday night.

Firefighters were called out to Rochdale Old Road at around 10.30pm where a large wheelie bin was set alight.

A pile of rubbish then went up in flames a little further along the road, followed by an abandoned old trampoline.

A spokesman for the crew said the fires were set off by local youths and police had been informed.
