Following the warmest and driest April on record, moorland fires broke out across the UK. Ogden Moor near Wainstalls above Halifax was one of many victims. Several square Km of moorland burned for four days. The blaze was tackled by fire fighters, but despite their efforts the blaze destroyed valuable moorland habitat, killing mammals and amphibians and destroying nesting birds nests. The wind farm was also closed down for a number of days as the blades were a danger to the helicopters fighting the blaze with aerial water drops. This shot shows tractors connected to hose pipes spraying the moorland to damp it down and to start the fire re-igniting that was still smouldering in the peat below.
