ARSONISTS set fire to a pile of rubbish at a former glass factory in Wordsley yesterday (Wednesday) evening.

Fire crews from Brierley Hill and Stourbridge were called to the site of the old Stuart Crystal Works, High Street, at 4.54pm.

A West Midlands Fire Service spokesman said the fire was caused by rubbish being set alight on the ground floor of the two-storey derelict building.
