The anti-social behaviour fires were started throughout Monday 5 April in the Brookfield Park area.

Crews from Preston Fire Station have been in attendance, and police are also responding to the incidents.

Posting on Twitter, a spokesperson for Preston Fire Station said those responsible were “taking resources and destroying local public areas.”

A subsequent tweet said the Lancashire Fire and Rescue Service six-wheel drive off-road elite specialist unit had been responding to several deliberate grass and wheelie bin fires in the parks of Preston.
