Firefighters tackled a blaze at a derelict pub in the early hours of this morning (Saturday).

Engines from Hemsworth and South Elmsall fire stations were called to the building in George Street, South Hiendley, at around 4.30am.

There was a fire in the downstairs floor of the pub, but no one was inside at the time.

A fire service spokesman said there was a similar fire in the building on Friday 24 January and that the two were probably started by vandals.
