Thorne firefighters dealt with a spate of five wheelie bin fires in less than an hour over the weekend.

Crews were first called to Thomas Road, Stainforth, just after 2.15am on Sunday and by 3.05am had dealt with another four burning bins outside houses in Emmerson Avenue, said a spokesman for South Yorkshire Fire and Rescue.

All five fires are being treated as deliberate acts and police are investigating.
