Rubbish was on fire near Sheffield Parkway last night.

Authorities were called to the scene at 8.48pm to find a large amount of rubbish ablaze on land adjacent to the Holiday Inn Sheffield.

Two pumps from the Sheffield Central station used water and foam to bring the fire under control.

A South Yorkshire Fire and Rescue Service spokesperson said more than 30 calls for help were received from concerned members of the public.
