Skip fires in different parts of Doncaster last night were started deliberately, say fire officers.

The first was at 10.45pm in Hunt Lane, Bentley, which was put out by Doncaster fire crews using a hose reel.

They were sent to Balby Road, Balby, at 1.30am and spent half an hour dealing with another burning skip.

Thorne firefighters were sent to Kirton Lane, Stainforth, around 11pm after a Mercedes saloon car was deliberately set alight.
