A fire service spokesman said: “The first call came in at 16.36 and we have since had a further 42 calls from members of the public.

“There is an 800 sq metre piece of land currently alight – most of it is gorse.

“We have two appliances from Longton and Cheadle in attendance as well as an off-road LandRover as we initially had difficulties gaining access to the area.”

It is not known, at this stage, what caused the fire and all the roads around the park are currently open.
