PM says situation ‘under constant review’ as fire rages on outskirts of Manchester

Residents living near a massive fire on Saddleworth Moor are hoping for a “really good downpour”, as the blaze spreading across three miles (6km) of moorland rages on the outskirts of Greater Manchester.

Theresa May told MPs the government was keeping the situation “under constant review” after police declared a major incident on Tuesday night as the fire service battled the blaze on Saddleworth Moor. .

Fire chiefs are in talks with the army to see if they can help tackle the blaze.

Whether you live in the area or work as a firefighter, police officer or emergency services worker we’d like to hear from you. How have you been affected?

Huge thanks to the GM firefighters working flat out to contain this worrying situation. If you live in the area, please follow the advice.
