Arsonists started a fire near stables on a Doncaster farm last night.

Edlington fire crews spent about half an hour extinguishing the flames after a number of straw bales were deliberately set alight on land off Green Balk, Clifton, near Conisbrough.

No animals were involved in the fire, said a spokesman.
