Firefighters are currently battling a moorland fire in Ilkley Moor after one of the hottest days of the year.

The West Yorkshire Fire and Rescue Service is saddened that around 50 hectares of moorland have been set on fire, and the crews have been called to separate flames.

This is a moorland north of Dick Hudson's Pub on Otley Road, Bingley.

This incident has since been cut back, although the service was also called for a second incident on the Hanging Stone Road in Ilkley. Seven pumps from West Yorkshire and North Yorkshire Fire Services participate.

There are no reports of injuries, and the investigators of the fire were also sent to the scenes to determine the causes.

The residents of Ilkley posted photos of the flame on Twitter, while drone material posted by user @newcol showed the extent of the fire with smoke on the slope.

One person commented, "We stood on our street for ten minutes and the flames doubled over the bogs, I'm not sure how the fire department will get by, there's so much beast up there, I hope the bunnies run away ,

Another person said on Twitter that they could see the fire "spreading very fast with big flames".
