Firefighters were called out to a motorbike fire in Mixenden last night (Tuesday).

The Honda bike had been dumped and deliberately set on fire in the Bank Edge area of Mixenden at 9pm.

A fire crew from Illingworth attended the incident and used one hose reel to put out the fire.

A West Yorkshire Fire Service spokesman said: “They had rolled it off the edge of a cliff and it was right at the bottom. By the time we’d found it and accessed it, it had nearly gone out so we just had to put a bit of water on it.”

Nobody was injured and crews left at 9.50pm.
