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.

Is it time to reintroduce the dog licence?

Yes - It would certainly make people more responsible about looking after their pets

No - Some people will just abandon dogs whether they've paid for a licence or not

Maybe - but also all dogs should be microchipped and tagged so owners can be traced
