Beach and Dune fires threaten safety of beach users and local residents

OVER Easter a spate of fires have taken place on the dune system and in the pinewoods, across the Sefton Coast.  Ranger services and also the Fire and Police are reminding people not to light fires on the beach, dunes and in the pinewoods.  It might seem ok for example to light a fire on the beach, but not only is it a danger well after you have gone for others, but it is a criminal office!  Plus lighting fires on the dunes and in the woods can and often does course major issues for wildlife and also can easily set fire to the area around, even when you think you have put the fire out. 

So please do not light fires, as you can be prosecuted if you do!  Thankfully this fire, that happened in Formby Pinewoods' on Easter Monday, was able to be put out by Merseyside Fire and Rescue before it took hold. Sadly it did damage the area and it can take quite a long time for the fragile environment to recover.   If you spot any fires, please call:- 999 and alert the fire service before they get a chance to spread.
