GWENT Police say they have received numerous reports of fires being started in bins in Abergavenny in the past few days.

It comes after residents reported bins being set alight in Bailey Park in the town over the weekend.

On social media on Sunday residents reported seeing most of the bins in the park “burned to the ground”.


Officers say they have been patrolling the area and are urging the public to be vigilant and report any suspicious activity via 101.

South Wales Fire and Rescue Service have been contacted for comment.
