FIREFIGHTERS dealt with a small fire in Lindow Moss peat bog on Tuesday.

Crews were called out to the scene off Newgate, in Wilmslow at 4.45pm.

They tackled the fire using a hose reel jet and stayed at the scene for 45 minutes.

The fire is not believed to have been started deliberately.

Lindow Moss was hit by a huge fire back in June 2018, when Britain basked in a heatwave that also saw major fires at Winter Hill and Saddleworth Moor.

Crews spent 48 hours at the peat bog dealing with that incident, which saw 1.5 acres of land hit by flames.
