Another recycling bin set on fire in Clegg Street E1W

By on September 2, 2016 in ASB

Within minutes of publishing our previous news story about the new Borough Commander making tackling ASB one of her main priorities LW was alerted to another bin fire in Clegg Street, near the old garages.

We went along to see what the situation was and found yet another recycling bin still smouldering after the Fire Brigade had doused the flames.

Unlike the multiple previous arsons this one took place in daylight. Which suggests that as the people doing this have been getting away with it no problem at all they are getting bolder.

Interestingly enough right next to the bin was a pile of used nitrous oxide (laughing gas) cylinders.

One of our neighbours had spotted the cylinders the previous day.

Many thanks to local resident Abdal Ullah for bringing this to our attention so quickly.
