Suspected arson attacks

There have been two suspected arson attacks in Mexborough. The first took place just after 1am this morning at a school on Hollingworth Close.

It is thought the play area behind the school, which is made largely of plastic, was pushed up against a set of doors. They were then set on fire, causing windows to smash and damage to the doors.

Then, at 1:15am there was a report a fire had been started in a wheelie bin at Coniston Court. It was pushed up against the door of a community centre, causing damage to the door and guttering.

No body was injured.

Police in Doncaster have arrested a 21 year old man on susicion of arson.
