Firefighters are urging people to take care over Easter as the countryside remains at risk of fire after a long spell of dry weather.

Andy Pearson, of Notts Fire and Rescue Service, said: “A cigarette flicked from a car window, a barbecue next to a hedge or a bonfire could start a blaze that destroys acres of countryside, crops or wildlife.”
