Aberystwyth Wales UK, June 29 2018
UK Weather: A forest fire that started on Tuesday 26the June is still burning and smouldering for a fourth day along the steep hillsides of the Rheidol Valley, a few miles inland of Aberystwyth in Mid Wales.
The terrain makes it difficult for fire-crews to get their vehicles close to the flames, and the fire is being dealt with by a specialist helicopter team , commissioned by Natural Resources Wales at a reputed £1000 per hour, who are dropping 1000 litre bucket loads of water, scooped up from the river below, onto the burning trees.
