THIS image of a burning rubbish bin was captured on camera in Great Yarmouth during the early hours of Sunday morning.

The bin was deliberately torched in an alleyway close to Walpole Road and Salisbury Road.

Arsonists setting bins alight has become a constant problem for fire fighters who were called out to deal with this blaze.

The local resident who took the photograph said: “One of the reasons that this fire was so big was that there were rubbish bags dumped alongside the wheelie bins - this is a problem that occurs when people leave bins out all the time.

“Since the introduction of the wheelie bins this area has gone downhill with more rubbish on the streets.”

A campaign was launched by the borough council last year to crack down on residents leaving bins on the street outside collection times.
