Wombwell family woke up to find bins had been set on fire

Monday August 3 2015




A FAMILY were woken up by a passer by in the early hours of Thursday (July 30) morning to be told their bins had been set on fire.

WABer Jill Taylor and her family were asleep at their home on Summer Lane in Wombwell after putting their bins out for emptying earlier that night.

She said: "Not only were two family cars parked extremely close by, the fire was directly beneath bedroom windows where family, including two young children and my pregnant daughter were sleeping.

"Had it not been for the gentleman waking us I dread to think what the outcome would have been."

Fortunately, Jill along with her husband and son-in-law managed to put the fire out.

My family (mentioned in this) put all the bins from their neighbours in front of their house as well as it keeps them off the street, there were 5 bins plus paper waste sacks that went up in that fire. My brother in law said that the heat on the cars as he moved them was horrific. I personally want to thank the man that woke them up as I know my family does because those idiots could have done so much more damaged and risked so much more!!!
