A SOUTH Tyneside street was left in darkness after a motorbike was set on fire.

The bike, which is believed to be stolen, was parked against a lamp-post and set on fire last night.

Firefighters were called to Derby Terrace in South Shields to tackle the blaze at about 7.15pm.

The lights in the street went out because of the fire, which left the bike destroyed and the lamp-post damaged.
