Barnsley firefighters kicked the door in to free a child trapped in her bedroom last night.

Fire crews were called to Westbourne Terrace, in the west of the town, after the three-year-old locked herself in the bedroom.

Her worried parents had taken the handle off the door in their attempts to let the toddler out of her room, at 1.45am.

The tactic didn't work, and fire crews were called. They freed her shortly after.

Elsewhere, garden fires at Goldthorpe and Kendrick kept other crews busy last night.

Wood pallets were set alight in the garden of an empty house on Neville Road, Kendrick, at 8.30pm.

Cudworth firefighters extinguished the flames in a fire they suspect was deliberately lit.

Rubbish in the yard of a house was alight in Goldthorpe when Dearne crews were called just before 12am.

They were on the scene at Cross Street for about an hour.
