Firefighters were called to a blaze caused by fireworks in Willingdon this morning.

A crew attended a fire on Butts Brow involving a box of fireworks at 8.12am.

The incident was left with Eastbourne Borough Council (EBC) officials.

A spokesperson for EBC said, “Someone had come and put fireworks in a pile of grass cuttings and set them off.

“The council removed the grass and made sure it was extinguished.”
