Firefighters have left Buchan Country Park, where a swathe of heathland was destroyed by fire.

The crews were called in this morning (May 24), after a 50m by 50m patch of land was “smouldering”.

A fire engine and two Land Rovers made their way to the scene and tackled the fire, leaving the site at 1.19pm this afternoon.

A spokesman said the fire may have been a deliberate ignition.
