A fire that spread from a garden fence to a shed in Wath-upon-Dearne late last night was started deliberately, it has been revealed.

The blaze at Newfield Crescent occurred just before midnight and took firefighters from the Dearne station almost an hour to quell.

Fortunately no nearby properties were put at risk by the fire, that was said to be arson by South Yorkshire Fire Service.
