Firefighters walk to hay bales blaze

Firefighters had to walk half a mile from Plumbley Hall Road, Mosborough, to reach 40 bales of hay that had been set on fire in a farmer’sf ield by arsonists. They used water-filled backpacks and beaters to douse the flames on Wednesday night last week.

A skip found burning on The Ravine in Shiregreen in the early hours of Thursday was also the result of arson.
