Third fire at Worthing Pier

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).
