Four fire engines put out a fire on the seventh floor of the derelict Hallam Towers hotel at around 6pm last night.

South Yorkshire Fire & Rescue says the fire was started deliberately.

In October it was reported that the building would be knocked down to make way for  apartments and serviced building plots.
