Firefighters and police have been dealing with a 'deliberate ignition' in Creswell.

Firefighters from Clowne along with officers from Derbyshire Police have been at Frithwood Lane where they found the waste set alight.

They used a hose reel jet to extinguish approximately ten square metres of rubbish, which had spread to hedgerows and grass.

Creswell SNT tweeted: "Surely the dangers don't need to be explained here, dry weather and fire... a lethal combination."
