WHEELIE bins were torched by youths at a park which police have described as a "rising issue" due to anti-social behaviour.

Firefighters were called to Leyland Park in Hindley after bins were set on fire last night.

PCSOs and firefighters had already been called to the park on Tuesday night after youths started fires in the park's bandstand.

Greater Manchester Police Hindley tweeted last night: "Hindley Parents: Do you know where your children are?

"We appreciate it's half term and the days are getting longer and children should be out having fun. Leyland park is becoming a rising issue with youths causing anti-social behaviour."
