Firefighters spend hours tacking Cumbrian harbour grass blaze

Firefighters spent more than two hours tackling a large grass fire.

Crews were called to a bush blaze near Harrington harbour at about 1.30pm yesterday.

Two appliances from Workington attended, along with a wildfire specialist team from Silloth.

The blaze, estimated to have covered about 1,000 metres square of grass and gorse, was extinguished using a jet and beaters by 4pm.

The fire followed days of dry weather and another large-scale grass fire started on the Scottish side of the Solway Firth at Criffel, near Dumfries.

Will you be turning out the lights in honour of those who fell in WW1?

Yes, it will be a fitting and moving collective tribute. I want to be part of it

No. I can't see it will make any difference to anything

I prefer to remember all those who died in all wars in my own way
