Five teenagers have been arrested after a police officer suffered a head injury when youths set off fireworks in a street in Sheffield on Bonfire Night.

The officer was among 40 who were sent to areas around Abbeydale Road.

South Yorkshire Police said those arrested were two 15-year-old boys, a boy and girl both aged 16, and a 17-year-old boy, all from the Sheffield area.

All the teenagers were being questioned on suspicion of violent disorder.

Insp Ian Stubbs said: "The events of Bonfire Night shocked and scared the local community.

"I know there was a lot of information posted on social media about this incident and we'd be keen to hear from anyone who may hold videos or photos that we haven't yet seen."
