FIREFIGHTERS from Cudworth station were called to a field after a pallet fire in Lundwood this week - it marked the eighth deliberate fire reported to the team since last weekend.

On Thursday (November 26), crews arrived at 9.30pm to tackle the blaze on Pontefract Road after two pallets were deliberately set alight.

The fire was put out by 10pm.

Earlier this week, firefighters across the borough were called other deliberate fires including a rubbish fire on Sheffield Road in Barnsley on Tuesday (November 24).
