At least 120 firefighters are battling to contain a wildfire spreading across the Lancashire moors – described as “aggressive” and “rapidly developing”. Helicopters have been drafted in to tackle fires in about seven areas. A major incident was declared after wildfires on Winter Hill and Scout Road near Bolton merged. Our north of England correspondent Clare Fallon is at the scene.
