Two fire engines were sent and the crews saw a bin store alight, which is thought to have been caused when a nearby mattress caught fire.

This then spread, burning the roof of a walkway.

Using hoses to extinguish the flames, followed by a fan to clear smoke, the incident ended only half an hour later.

Investigators believe the mattress was set alight deliberately.
