A car was set alight two times overnight in Wakefield.

Fire crews from Wakefield were first called to Duke of York Avenue, Portobello, at 9.30pm.

A Kia car was ablaze, believed to have been set alight deliberately.

They were called to the car again at 1am.

A West Yorkshire Fire and Rescue spokesperson said a wheelie bin had been put in the car and set on fire.

Crews used a hose reel to extinguish the fire.
