A MAN has been arrested after a series of deliberate fires in Musselburgh.

Police said a 28-year-old man would appear at Edinburgh Sheriff Court on Monday.

In the latest fire, a bin store was set alight in Beach Lane on Friday – just days after a flat, boats and cars were torched in the area.

Chief Inspector Matt Paden said: “I would like to thank the public in Musselburgh for their assistance in this investigation.”
