coming from the moorland fire in Greater Manchester.

We don't want that. Hope they get it sorted soon, but it's still quite serious by the reports coming through.

I could smell a burning smell last night in North Wales, it was quite strong, could've been from the moors fire.

That rig tends to burn off waste gas/oil around dusk. You can see a flame
and often black smoke.
