Firefighters have not ruled out arson as the cause of a hay bale fire at a Doncaster farm this morning.

Crews from Adwick, Dearne and Edlington fire stations were called out to Hangman Stones Road, in Marr, where around 500 bales of hay had caught light at 3.30am.

The blaze has now been put out but officers are still on the scene damping down the area.
