Multi-Agency Incident in Swanage
Ballard Down Fire. Emergency Services were called with the outbreak of fire on Ballard Down, Swanage Bay. The fire service has had many heathland fires in the area to deal with in recent weeks with the ‘heat wave’ that the UK is experiencing. This is probably the most awkward for them being a cliff face.
This incident is a multi agency situation with the fire service being supported by both the local Swanage Inshore lifeboat and coastguard.
