Crews from Bray and Greystones have been battling a forest fire since 1am.

The summer weather has been causing wildfires across Europe, with tourists in Spain and France being evacuated. This trend has been spreading north, with Irish firefighters having to do what they can to fight the blazes.

From Sunday until yesterday evening, Wicklow fire services were tending to a fire at Carrick Mountain near Glenealy.

Meanwhile, a fire is still burning in the Crone Woods in North Wicklow.

Crews from Bray and Greystones have been battling the forest fire since 1am.
