UK West Midlands Fire Service crews from Brierley Hill attended the fire at Saltwells Nature Reserve at around 1.30pm.

Witnessing the flames and taking photos as fire crews tackled them, was resident George Perkins.

He said: "I was walking at the nature reserve and I noticed the fire at half one today lasting till two when we left. However it was still blazing when we left.

"There was considerable damage done to the trees with roughly five firefighters patting it down and one on the actual cliff directing colleagues."
