Arsonists set light to haybales and rubbish in Rotherham

TWO haybales and some rubbish were torched in two areas of Rotherham overnight.

Firefighters from Rotherham station were called out to two hay bales alight on Fenton Road in Kimberworth Park at 11.20pm and were on scene for just over an hour.
