Firefighters were called-out to extinguish fly-tipped rubbish that had been set alight this morning.

A crew from Longtown Fire Station extinguished a fire in the early hours of this morning on the Brisco Hill to Hopesike Road.

Longtown Fire Station said: "Not only is it criminal to dump rubbish but reckless to create a fire hazard of this nature.

"Hopefully those responsible will be found."
