A GORSE fire in a village is thought to have been started deliberately.

Fire crews went to Village Road in Northop Hall at about 4.45pm on Wednesday, where 10 sq metres of gorse and bracken was alight.

A bucket of water and a shovel were used to deal with the flames.

A spokesman for North Wales Fire and Rescue said: “We think it may have been started deliberately and youths were spotted in the area before the incident.”
