I have just been speaking to my Great-Niece (shades of the GA) who lives within walking distance of Winter Hill, where the latest fire has taken hold. She says it shows no sign of dying down yet, though fortunately for her, the wind is blowing the smoke towards Blackpool and away from Bolton.
A young man was arrested for arson, but reports now say he has been released without charge.
They can see the smoke of Saddleworth in the distance, but that seems to be reducing at last.
