Firefighters were called to deal with a fire that was believed to have been started intentionally.

Four fire engines from West Sussex Fire and Rescue attended the scene in Loxwood Road, Horsham, to deal with a large pile of burning tyres at 12.15pm.

It took the firefighters a number of hours to get the blaze under control and it is believed that the fire was started deliberately.

The fire has since been dealt with and firefighters have now left the scene.
