A grassland fire is tackled at a beauty spot


Firefighters have been at the scene of a large fire at a Cheshire beauty spot.

A large amount of grassland was affected by the blaze and firefighters worked through the night to contain the flames.

The Cloud is a steep hill offering panoramic views of the Cheshire Plain which is popular with walkers and mountain bikers.
