A MAN has been arrested on suspicion of attempted murder - after a woman was found with serious burn injuries.

The woman, 51, remains in Sheffield’s Northern General Hospital in a serious condition.

Found by police at a property in Primrose Avenue, Darfield, at around 6.20pm on Monday, a 46-year-old man was then arrested on the street and taken into custody.

Neighbours were 'shocked' to see the women covered in thick bandages being helped into an ambulance.

A neighbour, who didn’t want to be named, said a police helicopter was at the scene on Monday.

A police spokesman said: "Police were called to a property in Primrose Avenue, Darfield, where a 51-year-old woman was found suffering from extensive burn injuries.

"She was taken to Northern General Hospital where her condition was described on Tuesday as serious."
