Warning signs are being erected at the North York Moors National Park in an attempt to prevent people from lighting fires or barbecues.

After analysing the weather and moisture levels in the area's soil, it has been determined by the National Park Authority that the area will be on fire alert, according to the Malton Mecury.

Bernie McLinden, the authority’s Head of Park Management, told the news provider: "Dry vegetation, a lack of moisture in the ground and breezy conditions could quickly whip a spark from a BBQ or dropped cigarette into a large blaze."

Ms McLinden also noted that the cooler temperatures have made little impact to the conditions at the park.

Meanwhile, the Star recently reported that St Leger Homes in Doncaster has been given the highest possible rating from the British Safety Council, after it applied efficient health and safety measures.

Susan Jordan, chief executive of St Leger Homes, described the award as fantastic news for the companyADNFCR-2754-ID-800566415-ADNFCR
