We can see and smell the smoke from the fire on Saddleworth Moor 20 miles away! 😨 Please spare a thought for the humans and animals who live there, and the brave humans working hard to get this awful fire under control.

With such devastating scenes as those from please please remember to be responsible when visiting the beautiful British Countryside. Discarded cigerettes or glass bottles for example can have huge consequences.

There seems to be a strong correlation with where the fire has been raging, and the tell-tale signs of intensively-managed grouse moor. Dry, burned heather is surely ideal tinder. Is this just coincidence?

Coming back on the train to Manchester the smoke is thick enough from to make passengers feel sick. Thinking of all the firefighters battling the blaze I wonder how long before the Tories claim they started the fire?

Large on again. This time in February...(!) Severe negative anomaly in precip for January across UK likely means dry ground conditions compared with usual. N England region also saw dry anomaly for 2018 average precipitation overall.

Satellite image of the fire confirms location as being a large grouse moor. As uncovered, this land (outlined) is owned by the Enville & Stalybridge Estates, who've been "undertaking a very exciting restoration of a 3,000 acre grouse moor" there.
