Arsonists set fire to gorse in Cornwall

Arsonists have set fire to a big area of gorse at St Columb Major, the Cornwall Fire Service says.

Crews battled to put out a 200 sq m (2,150 sq ft) area at Tregonetha Downs after it broke out just after midnight.

It is the second gorse fire in the county within 48 hours which is being treated as suspicious.

A fire at Tregoss Downs with two 75m (245ft) long fronts on Monday evening was also being investigated by police, the fire service said.
