Fire crews tackle burning moorland blaze near Hebden Bridge

Officers from West Yorkshire Fire and Rescue service have been battling a large moorland blaze this afternoon at Widdop Reservoir near Hebden Bridge.

Fire crews from Lancashire and Manchester and eight fire engines have assisted in tackling the burning area.

People are being reminded to be careful walking on the moors when taking their daily exercise due to the recent dry weather which makes the land more prone to fire risk.
