Arsonists torch pallets and sofa in the Dearne Valley

PALLETS and a sofa were set on fire by arsonists in the Dearne Valley last night (Wednesday). 

The pallets were targeted in Mitchells Way, Wombwell, at 8.50pm and firefighters were at the scene for nearly half an hour.

The same crew was then called to Maple Road, Mexborough, at 9.50pm to deal with the burning sofa.
