Less than a week after police were called to a campfire and disgusting campsite mess at Studland, and a few weeks after the Wareham Forest fires, more campfires have been discovered in Studland.

Dorset and Wiltshire Fire and Rescue has put together a team of volunteers to patrol forests, heaths and countryside to locate anyone bending the rules.

Today, the volunteers found traces of several campfires at Studland – on dry grass and near heathlands.

In areas of risk we must not have any barbecues campfires or stoves thank you and enjoy our countryside
