A man accused of setting fire to a children's nursery in Sheffield has appeared in court.

Elliott Hague, 18, from Beighton, is alleged to have started the blaze, which destroyed parts of the Bizzy Bees Playgroup, in November.

The cost of repairing the nursery has been put at about £575,000.

Mr Hague appeared at Sheffield Magistrates Court earlier where he was bailed to appear at the city's crown court on 18 February.
