Bridport firemen called for open fire and BBQ

A group of people were seen cooking on top of a rock. Firemen were then called.

Bridport Fire station was called shortly after 6:30pm on Sunday August 21st to report on Eype Beach.

A few folks set up an open flame and enjoyed a barbecue at the base of the cliffs, in spite of numerous warnings and fire danger messages. To extinguish the flames and to offer advice, crews utilized a bucket filled with water.

A spokesperson for Bridport’s Fire Station stated: “Please, please don’t have open fires or BBQ’s on grass. We’ve all seen recently what can happen when these catch light to the dry vegetation. And please keep away from the base of cliffs as these are extremely susceptible to rock falls.”
