A FLAT above a row of shops in Doncaster town centre has been left gutted by a blaze.

Emergency services believe the fire in the unoccupied flat in Copley Road was deliberately started around 3am today.

Firefighters managed to control the blaze and stop the flames spreading to the Myth ‘N’ Magick shop below.

Crews from Doncaster and Edlington left the scene around three hours after arriving.
