Four people have been arrested after two separate gun incidents and an arson attack in a Doncaster street.

Officers investigating a string of incidents outside a property in Milton Road, Carcroft last week swooped on houses across Doncaster this morning.

The arrests follow a series of incidents which took place between Thursday 27 July and Saturday 5 August on the street in which shots were fired on two occasions, and a motorhome set alight on the later date. Nobody was injured in any of the incidents.
