Wildfire risk high in NW Scotland

Many areas are still struggling to recover from snow drifts but according to a BBC report, north-west Scotland escaped the snow and the dry conditions have resulted in a spate of wildfires.

The main muirburn season extends until 15 April, but anyone planning muirburn in NW Scotland is advised to exercise great caution.  Conditions may be too dry and it would be difficult or impossible to control a fire after it has started.
