FIREFIGHTERS were again called to an unattended bonfire in Herefordshire last night.

A crew from Leominster Fire Station were called to the blaze at Brockmanton, near Leominster, at 7.33pm on June 2.

The flames were put out using backpack extinguishers, shovels and a drag hook.

The callout is one of many in Herefordshire and surrounding counties in recent weeks.


While the weather has taken a turn today, firefighters have warned over recent weeks that dry conditions mean fires could spread easily and have asked people not to light fires if at all possible.
