Firefighters were called out to a Sheffield park last night, after equipment there was set alight deliberately.

Crews arrived at the Bawtry Road Sports Park in Brinsworth at around 9.30 last night.

They extinguished the blaze, which is believed to have been started deliberately, and left the scene at around 10pm.

South Yorkshire police were also reportedly called out to the park yesterday evening after receiving reports of illegal activity from members of the public.
