A suspected arsonist is due to stand trial later this year after being charged in connection with a series of fires in Wath.

Brett Dungworth, 22, of Bushfield Road, Wath, will appear at Sheffield Crown Court for a plea and case management hearing next month. He is charged with nine arson offences.

A provisional trail date has been set for the end of the year.

Dungworth is accused of setting fire to four cars, three wheelie bins and two doors, including a garage door. The alleged offences were committed in the Winfield Road, Stump Cross Road and Saville Road areas.

Officers are still investigating. Anyone with information about the incidents should contact police on 101.
