Allotments targeted

AN allotment shed destroyed by fire had been torched deliberately, said fire officers.

Firefighters were called to a blaze on allotments at Merrill Road, Thurnscoe, at about 5pm on Sunday.

No-one was injured in the fire, but the shed and its contents were destroyed.

A few hours later, a fire crew attended a burning car at Wombwell.

This time, the blaze in a Landrover was attributed to an electrical fault.

The incident occurred at about 12.30am today (Monday) at Highfield Court and again, no-one was injured.
