Saturday night bonfire parties in Doncaster appear to have passed off without any major incident last night.

There were no reports of any serious casualties and a spokesman for South Yorkshire Fire and Rescue said they had not attended any out-of-control bonfires in the Doncaster and Dearne area.

“We thought we might get some with last night’s strong winds but the only call we had reported was cancelled before we got there so it can’t have been much,” he said.
