Thieves are believed to have stolen a motorbike before setting it alight and ditching it at the side of a busy road.

Firefighters from Dearne Fire Station were called to the scene in Hill Top Road, Denaby, at 4.45am on Saturday.

They spent about 20 minutes tackling the blaze using a single water jet hose reel.

A brigade spokesman said the fire had been started deliberately.
