A 17-year-old boy has been charged with arson with intent to endanger lives.

The boy, who cannot be named for legal reasons, was arrested on Saturday after a firework was put through the window of a house in Darnall on Friday evening.

No one was injured.

The boy appeared at Sheffield Youth Court on Monday 2 November and has since been released on bail.

Superintendent Colin McFarlane, South Yorkshire Police's lead officer on anti-social behaviour, said

"Any kind of antisocial behaviour will not be tolerated. You could be given a fine, a criminal behaviour order or even face a prison sentence.

"I would like to reassure local residents that in the run up to Bonfire Night we will continue to work to effectively and robustly to deal with any antisocial behaviour issues."
