Fire in Thornton Lodge

There was a small house fire in Thornton Lodge last night. Fire crews were called to extinguish a contained blaze at a house on Springdale Street after smouldering cigarettes in a wastepaper bin caught fire.

There was no one in the property at the time so no-one was injured. Two engines attended after the alarm was raised by a smoke detector and neighbours called the fire brigade.

Area cordoned off in Dewsbury

We’ve had reports an area around the Station Hotel in Dewsbury was cordoned off last night by police.

We don’t know whether or not this is connected to arrests made near the junction of Headfield Road and Lock Street following a gunshot heard in Crosland Moor.

Police have said the cordons were not related to the pub.

We will keep you updated.

These pictures were taken yesterday evening and sent to us by Ash Milnes.
