Eight months after a huge blaze destroyed part of the Staffordshire Peak District, there are still no signs of wildlife.

The Staffordshire Wildlife Trust say the land is starting to recover, but there is no life there yet.

The blaze, which lasted more than two weeks, is thought to have been caused by a camp fire back in August 2018.

Around 200 acres of land was destroyed, which caused devastation for the wildlife in the area.

The fire service said it could take ten years to undo the damage.
