SHROPSHIRE firefighters had to call out specialist equipment for an open fire in Nesscliffe on Saturday night.

Two crews were called out – one from nearby Baschurch and one from Church Stretton – to the Nesscliffe Country Park at around 11.05pm, where they found a fire in the open.

A pinzgauer – an all-terrain vehicle – was also sent to the scene while firefighters used knapsacks to put the fire out, taking around 30 minutes at the scene.
