300 hay bales set alight

AROUND 300 bales of hay have gone up in flames in a deliberate fire in Doncaster.

Firefighters were called to Manor Farm in Clifton Hill, Conisbrough , at midnight to tackle the blaze.

The fire started in around 500 bales of hay, destroying around half of them, a fire service spokesman.

Sixty bales of hay on the other side of the field are also believed to have been deliberately set alight, the spokesman said.

Fire crews left the scene at around 8am this morning.
