Arsonists also set fire to bags of litter in Sheffield High Street at 4.15am this morning.

South Yorkshire Police said there had been 583 separate incidents in a six hour period alone on Saturday night.

It also follows a previous incident involving a group of masked men throwing fireworks in Stainforth Road, Darnall, on Halloween night, Tuesday, between 6.30pm and 9.30pm.

Police introduced extra patrols in areas of the city where trouble has historically been caused over the bonfire night weekend.

These highly dangerous attacks were among more than 500 incidents reported to South Yorkshire Police within a matter of hours on Saturday night, which also included fireworks being thrown through the letterbox of a home, into a pub and a supermarket.
