People are being reminded not to dump disposable barbecues into communal bins.

Fire crews were called out twice on Friday evening to the Sutherland Road and Rochester Street area of Brighton to deal with bin fires.

Both incidents were caused by barbecues that had not been put out properly.

Disposable barbeques should not be placed  in a rubbish bin until they have cooled down properly.

This may take several hours.

Once cool, water should be poured over it to make sure it's out.
