“Approximately 2,000 square metres of vegetation is believed to be involved in fire.”


“Firefighters are using high pressure hose reel jets and beaters. There is a large amount of smoke as a result of the fire.”


Nearby residents and businesses are advised to keep their windows and doors closed.


Anyone with existing medical conditions should keep medicines nearby and call NHS 111 if ill effects occur.


The incident is ongoing.


UPDATE 1.56pm

The main body of the fire has now been extinguished and crews are checking for hot spots using pac liders and beaters.


UPDATE AT 2:40pm

The fire has now been extinguished. Crews are making up their equipment and are expected to leave the scene shortly.


Rimrose Valley

It is is bounded by the Leeds Liverpool canal to the east and the Southport - Liverpool railway line to the west.


A local resident said: “I saw the pall of black smoke from my garden. A large area to the right of the path from Brookvale and at the rear of the Nature Reserve was alight.”
