THERE was a third fire in less than a week at Worthing Pier yesterday (Tuesday, May 22).
Firefighters were called to the scene shortly before 5.30pm.
They found a small bin fire beneath the pier.
The daily West Sussex Fire and Rescue Service log described the fire as “arson” but a Sussex Police spokesman said evidence suggested all three fires were started accidentally.
Firefighters were twice called to the pier on Thursday (May 17).
