A huge gorse fire on Sark's cliffs saw fire officers working overnight to put it out.

Volunteer fire crews were called at 10:30pm and fought to get the blaze under control until 3am.

They've been praised by local businesses for their 'brave, prompt, decisive action'.

Islanders were watching the blaze take hold from Guernsey's coastline and witnesses claimed two small fires were still burning at approximately 1am.

Crews will return to the scene this morning to ensure the fire is fully out and investigate how it started.

There are no reports of any injuries.
