Youths set fire to wheelie bins in Ovenden


Halifax fire crews were called to an arson attack in a residential area of North Halifax.

A gang of children aged from eight to sixteen were abusive to fire fighters when they arrived to put out the flames of the deliberate torching of Denfield Crescent residents’ wheelie bins.

Several bins were set alight. One pump was deployed for around thirty minutes to put out the fire.

Police were called but the youths dispersed before they arrived, said fire fighters.
