Grass Fires On The Increase

parksunny_070710.jpg It might be cloudy today but the weekend is set to be another blinder - so let us don our Cassandra hat and bring you the news that all this heat is sparking (heh) an increase in grass fires. A Walthamstow allotment was scorched on Monday and a trackside fire in Hither Green caused delays in and out of London Bridge on Tuesday morning. Fire brigades across the capital are reporting more blazes than usual for the time of year, so watch what you're doing with that fag end, barbeque or even glass bottle. By the way, if you're really interested in fire (not in an arson way), we'd like to point you at the latest release on London datastore: LFB information for 2008-2009. (Image / SabineThöle)
