Derbyshire scrapyard fire 'deliberate' say fire crews

A fire at a Derbyshire scrapyard was started deliberately, fire investigators have said.

Crews from Long Eaton, Heanor and Ilkeston were called to Awsworth Road near the Ilkeston Town football ground at about 0600 BST.

About 30 vehicles were damaged as the flames spread rapidly but no-one was hurt.

The fire was the second to break out there in the space of about four weeks, local residents said.

Police are now carrying out an investigation.
