Firefighters tackled a blaze at a shop in Ramsey after arsonists attacked two nearby industrial bins on Saturday (September 13).

Two crews from Ramsey and Stanground were called to the fire on Great Whyte at 3.48am to find two industrial bins already well alight and spreading to the nearby shop.

The flat above the store was evacuated before crews arrived and firefighters used fans to clear the smoke.

Crews returned to their stations by 6.30am.
