Arsonists have plagued the Craigavon area by setting a number of grass verges and bushes on fire over the past two days.

The latest fire happened on the Brownlow Road around 10.30pm last night.

The Northern Ireland Fire Service were once again dispatched to the scene to deal with the blaze under a flyover and close to the main road.

SDLP activist Thomas Larkham hit out at those responsible.

“This is the latest in a number of grass fires over the past 24hrs which appear to have been ignited deliberately around the Brownlow/Central Craigavon area,” he explained.

“I would appeal to those responsible to stop and think of the consequences of starting these fires.

“Not only are you putting yourselves and others in immediate danger but you are placing undue pressure on valuable resources.

“This is not a game! Anyone with any information in relation to these incidents please call 101 and report to PSNI.”
