Fire crews were called to a blaze in a wooded area in Dover on Thursday evening.

They were alerted just before 6.20pm when smoke was seen coming from the woods in Whitfield.

Due to the difficult access, fire crews had to investigate on foot and used flex packs and a hose reel to extinguish the blaze.
