Arsonists are being blamed for setting fire to several sheds and workshops used for crafting handmade goods in South Yorkshire last night.

Fireifighters said the outbuildings in Chapel Lane, Thurnscoe in Barnsley were being used for a mixture of storage and work spaces to make goods.

Yobs struck at about 7.40pm and crews from Dearne Valley, Adwick and Edlington stations spent nearly three hours tackling the blaze.
