Firefighters water skips

Have your say

FIREFIGHTERS are going to spray water over rubbish skips around Cudworth, Bansley, in a bid to make it more difficult for arsonists to set fire to them.

The move forms part of an operation launched by South Yorkshire Fire Service and South Yorkshire Police following a spate of arson attacks in the area.

Between January and May there were 26 fires started deliberately, including 18 skip and refuse containers.

Firefighters are given the location of skips by Police Community Support Officers.
