Firefighters tackle major wildfire near Keith

Firefighters were called out to tackle a major wildfire near Keith in Moray on Thursday night.

Five fire appliances and the forestry unit were involved in trying to stop the spread of the grassland blaze on the Glenrinnes Estate.

The fire coincides with warnings that the north east is at an increased risk of wildfires due to the warmer weather and dry conditions.
