Sheffield suburb dubbed ‘Beirut’ as yobs set car on fire in Bonfire Night blaze


share close

A shocking video has emerged of a car engulfed by flames after it was set on fire during Bonfire Night celebrations in Sheffield – prompting comparisons to war-torn Beirut.

The footage was filmed metres away from the fireball parked at the side of the road in Darnall on Friday night with bystanders watching it burn.

Sheffield Online uploaded the video to its Facebook page with the title “Bonfire In Darnall”.

While some took to the comment section to criticise the yobs behind the arson attack, others also suggested the title of the video was in poor taste.

Others pointed out there were similar problems last year in the area with some people using fireworks “as guns”.

One person wrote: “That’s what they call a Sheffield bonfire nothing unusual in Sheff City.”

Another said: “To think the police used to have to arrest the odd drunk at closing time when the Darnall old timers came out of the pubs.

“Now there’s no pubs in Darnall so the present residents go out and burn a car. How the area has evolved.”

Someone else wrote: “Every year without fail Darnall last year they was using fireworks as guns. I know I was riding through, but seriously discusting (sic).”

Another wrote: “Like Beirut.”

A few people said the post title was in poor taste.

One person wrote: “Wtf? Sheffield Online is seriously going down the pan. You see this as a bonfire?”
