Fire crews are tackling a large moorland fire in the grounds of one of the North West's best known stately homes.

Lyme Hall at Disley in Cheshire is where Pride and Prejudice was filmed for TV in 1995.

Cheshire Fire and Rescue service say the fire is located on a large moorland area south of Knightslow woods.

There are no reports of any injuries.

Lyme Park has been closed to the public and visitors are advised to stay away.
