Firefighters spent about half an hour beating out flames from burning stubble in a field at Armthorpe, Doncaster, this afternoon.

They believe smouldering from a cigarette accidentally dropped in the field off Barton Lane may have been spread by the breeze.

By the time they arrived at 12.15pm about a 100 sq m of stubble was alight.
