Sheffield Ski village arson teens sentenced

Two teenagers have been given community orders for setting a fire at an outdoor ski village in Sheffield.

The fire at Sheffield Ski Village on 24 April caused significant damage and the boys, who can not be named, had admitted arson earlier.

The city's youth court imposed an 18-month youth rehabilitation order with intensive supervision and a curfew on one boy.

The other was given a 12-month referral order also with intensive supervision

The fire, which damaged the old cafe at the site, came a year after the main building at the Vale Road site was destroyed by an accidental fire.
