They said: “Unfortunately on this occasion, wildlife have been affected.

"This is the fourth fire at this location within a three week period – please keep our open spaces safe.”

Firefighters have dealt with a number of moorland fires in recent weeks, many of which are thought to have been caused by disposable barbecues.
