According to reports from June 26, the 100-year-old Rossington Methodist Church in Doncaster was destroyed in a fire, suspected to be an act of arson.


A spokesman for the South Yorkshire Fire and Rescue Service wrote the following in an official statement: “Fire crews from Rossington, Doncaster, Edlington, and Parkway stations responded to a fire at a derelict church on Nelson Road, New Rossington, Doncaster, at 2:10am. The church was engulfed in flames, and nearby premises were evacuated as a precaution. No casualties were reported. The fire is believed to have been started deliberately.
