Parasols set alight on city centre street in Sheffield

Firefighters from Central were called to Brown Street, Sheffield, at 2.31am today (Wednesday 3 July) to reports of a fire.

Upon arrival they found two sun parasols on fire outside a local cinema.

They were almost out by the time the crew arrived, with firefighters using a jet to ensure they were fully extinguished.

The crew left shortly after, around 2.49am, but it is thought this fire was started deliberately.
