A series of cars have been set on fire in Doncaster and Barnsley.

The incidents, which are all thought to be deliberate, occured within two hours of each other, between 9pm and 11pm on Thursday January 7.

The first incident reported was in Doncaster where, due to the length of time the vehicle had been alight before being reported, firefighters were unable to determine the make and model of the car. One fire engine from the Doncaster station attended.

The second incident reported was in Barnsley, where firefighters from Dearne station found a Citroen DS4 alight.

The final incident reported was also in Barnsley, where Dearne firefighters found a Vauxhall Insignia well alight.

All three car fires were successfully extingushed and there were no casualties.
