A second blaze has broken out on moorland in West Yorkshire on one of the hottest days of the year.

The fire on Marsden Moor is believed to have been started by a barbecue at Easter Gate, the National Trust said.

Eleven crews from West Yorkshire Fire and Rescue are at the scene trying to get the flames under control.

Firefighters also remain on Ilkley Moor, damping down at a fire which started on Saturday and spread over 25,000 sq metres of moorland.
