Firefighters tackled a car fire in Ravensthorpe last night (Sunday).

Crews from Dewsbury were called to the blaze at Field Lane at 10.15pm, where they found a Vauxhall Astra on fire.

A West Yorkshire Fire and Rescue Service spokesman said the car’s windows had been smashed the night before and it is thought the fire was started deliberately.

Firefighters used a high pressure hose reel and breathing apparatus at the scene.
