Firefighters continue to tackle blazes

Firefighters are continuing to tackle wildfires which have broken out across the UK, including parts of the Scottish Highlands, Northern Ireland and Lancashire, Berkshire and south Wales.

The unusually dry spell has fuelled blazes and crews have reported high winds are also causing problems.

The BBC's Ed Thomas reports from West Yorkshire, where fires have been raging at some locations for up to five days.
