Lyme Park 'smoking' warning

A fire chief has warned people to be careful smoking after a moorland blaze broke out at the National Trust's Lyme Park estate.

Crews battled the fire, which covered 0.75 sq miles (2 sq km) at one point, for more than five hours after it broke out at 16:10 BST on Thursday in Disley.

Cheshire Fire and Rescue Service's area manager Lee Shears called on people to "be sensible" around dry moorland.

There were no injuries and the park and hall have now reopened.
All that's necessary for the triumph of evil is for good men to do nothing
