Part of an industrial estate went up in flames in Rotherham last night.

The blaze ripped through Northfield Industrial Estate and caused damage to machinery, a skip and other industrial equipment at about 10pm.

Firefighters from four stations - Rotherham, Dearne, Elm Lane and Maltby, spent nearly three hours battling the flames.

A South Yorkshire Fire and Rescue spokesperson said the cause was accidental.
