A fire has broken out at a Sheffield outdoor ski centre, nearly a year after a series of fires shut down the site.

South Yorkshire Fire and Rescue said the service had received more than 120 calls about the latest blaze at Ski Village on Vale Road, which started at about 20:30 BST.

A spokesperson said a large wooden shed and outbuildings were alight, and 21 firefighters were at the scene.

The main building of the Ski Village was destroyed by fire on 29 April 2012.

That fire was ruled to be an accident but investigations showed two further fires on 1 May and 21 May were started deliberately.
