Police received multiple reports of bins on fire in central Brighton on Sunday (29 November) and Monday (30 November). Fire crews attended and the fires were extinguished. No damage was caused except to the bins themselves and no injuries were reported.
“Wilkinson caused multiple fires in busy areas with no regard for the safety and welfare of the local community which is completely unacceptable.
“We are pleased the courts have acknowledged the seriousness of these offences by jailing him for six months.”
