BILTON: Large agricultural field fires

An arson has been reported in your

Following a spate of field fires over recent days in Ganstead and Bilton area of East Riding, Humberside Fire and Rescue Service is reiterating its warnings to farmers as it continues to work alongside Humberside Police to protect farms and bring to book those responsible for these serious crimes.

Members of the public in rural areas are asked to be especially vigilant and report anything suspicious to the relevant authorities or by simply dialling 999 in the most urgent cases.

The majority of field fires have been proven to have been started deliberately, including the incident in Ganstead earlier this week. Twenty-two acres of agricultural fields were damaged in that incident and tied up dozens of firefighters for a significant period of time. Local residents feared that the fire would spread to nearby properties.
