BREAKING VIDEO: Fire at old Sheffield Ski Village site

Have your say

A fire has broken out at the former site of the Sheffield Ski Village South Yorkshire Fire & Rescue has confirmed.

Plumes of smoke could be seen from miles around from the Parkwood Springs area as three fire engines from Central and Rivelin tackled the blaze.

The disused ski village has been the target of repeated arson attacks.

The ski village has been derelict since it was devastated by fire in 2012.

In its heyday the facility, now owned by businessman Kevin Pullan, was the largest artificial ski resort in Europe with a shop, bar, restaurant and a range of slopes.

But since the fire, the site has been blighted by fly tipping, further arson attacks and vandalism.
