A LARGE amount of hay bales were set on fire by arsonists.

Firefighters were at the area for over seven hours as they used two jets to protect the surrounding area and let the 80 bales burn out by themselves.

The crew from Maltby were called to the incident in Raw Lane, Stainton, at around 3.48am on Sunday.

A spokesman for the fire service confirmed the blaze was started deliberately.
