A large skip full of tyres was set on fire overnight on a residential road in Rawmarsh.

Rotherham firefighters were called out at 12.30am to the blazing skip on Coronation Road.

A fire service spokeswoman said: “The fire is thought to have been started deliberately. It was contained within the skip and fire crews left the scene after just over an hour.”
