Two fires were extinguished in Stevenage last night, which were believed to be set on purpose.

Firefighters from Stevenage were called at 8pm to a bin on fire in Wisden Road.

After putting it out, they were called to a large fire in the woods in Turpins Rise, which they extinguished with a hose reel.

Both fires are believed to have been set deliberately, although it is not known if they are connected.
