Lancashire fire crews have issued a warning about wildfires after several blazes over the weekend.

Crews were called out to several fires yesterday, and although none were serious fire chiefs have warned members of the public to be vigilant when on the moors.

A spokesman said: "We attended several small wildfires around the county yesterday.

"With the warm and sunny weather continuing today, please make sure you take extra care when you are walking on the moors."
