Firefighters have been tackling a new moorland fire in Lancashire as the sunny weather continues to leave the ground tinder dry across the country.

Crews were called out to a location near Darwen at 02:00 BST this morning (May 5th) after a fresh blaze broke out, one of several occurring in the south of the county in recent days.

Those keen to put on their hiking boots and go walking may wish to seek valley routes and areas near water instead of vulnerable moorland until rain arrives.

And keeping any glass items inside rucksacks instead of discarding them is an important move, as this not only prevents littering but also avoids having the sun's rays projected.

Other fires across Britain have included one blaze on the Queen's Balmoral Estate in the Cairngorms, while elsewhere in the national park two fires were put out by rangers before they could wreak havoc in the Rothiemurchus Forest.
