The is another result of the disgraceful mismanagement of our uplands. Their ecological cleansing leaves them susceptible to fire: later successional states are more fire-resistant.

The evidence is stacking up: the is likely to have been caused by the way the moors are managed - for driven grouse shooting. Again, other people suffer for this disgraceful "sport".

The young woman on the till in Primark just remarked to me: β€œI wish people would celebrate the people fighting the fires on the moors as much as they do the England football team.” So insightful, I was blown away by that.

Can’t believe that people being evacuated in Saddleworth Moor Fire in Manchester were told to leave their pets behind? Luckily that horrendous decision was overturned. Thinking of all those involved!

13 hour shift, stink of smoke, shower before bed and back in work for 1pm. At least I'm in my own bed unlike the poor folk evacuated due to the fire!

Smoke from the probable cause of air pollution episodes across Manchester, Salford, Wigan, St Helen's, Warrington, and maybe as far as Liverpool; as easterly winds drive the smoke to the west. Big spikes in particulates indicate 'very unhealthy' conditions.

Thick black smoke can be seen for miles after more fires break out on tinderbox dry hills at Winter Hill in Bolton. Not what exhausted firefighters want to see after bringing blazes under control on Saddleworth Moor
