  1. The fire was started by 3 teenagers who had been out there all evening talking.
    They might of started it by accident or on purpose but either way it was started by a total disregard to anyone’s safety and no care for wildlife and the farmer who needs the hay to feed his cattle.
    I was in the my garden all evening and witnessed them come back and say we need to try and put it out .
    The fire brigade used my garden to gain access to the field.
    This isn’t the first time it’s happened but with all the teenagers out there smoking weed it’s just a matter of time before it happens again.
