ARSONISTS struck four times in 50 minutes this morning.

A shipping container belonging to Canterbury Youth Club, on Arum Street, Little Horton, was set alight at about 5.55am.

It was being used to store second-hand furniture and books, said a fire service spokesman who added that everything inside was destroyed.

Firefighters also tackled two wheeled bin fires and doused a conifer tree that was set alight nearby.

All four fires are believed to have been started by the same groups of youths.

Fire crews from Odsal and Fairweather Green dealt with the incidents.
