A teenager who was arrested after a 14-year-old boy was "very badly burnt" by a bonfire in Lincoln will face no further police action.

The 15-year-old boy was detained by officers after five teenagers started a bonfire in a metal bin on 20 October.

It is believed an accelerant was used in the back garden bonfire at a house in Roman Pavement.

Lincolnshire Police said the 15-year-old who was also helping with inquiries had been released without charge.

The 14-year-old had suffered "extensive" injuries and had received specialist treatment at a hospital in Birmingham, police said on Monday.

A 12-year-old boy was also injured and treated locally for minor burns.
