Wildfires burn in Northern Ireland countryside

There have been 511 gorse fires across in Northern Ireland since the start of May.

At least 90% of the fires were started deliberately, fire officials say.

The Cuilcagh Mountain trail in County Fermanagh has been closed to the public due to one of the fires.

Those who started fires deliberately put firefighters, the public and property at risk, said the Northern Ireland Fire and Rescue Service.
