ARSONIST are believed to have caused a second fire in community buildings in two days.

A fire in the changing rooms of a pavillion building at St George's Playing Fields, in St Chad's Road, Tilbury, is believed to have been set fire deliberately.

An Essex Fire and Rescue spokesman said: "This is the second deliberate fire in two days, with vandals setting light to a scout hut in the same road yesterday. Firefighters used one hose reel to tackle the fire. The incident was dealt with by 11:57am."

Two crews from Orsett dealt with the blaze.
