Fire threatens wildlife

-

A huge blaze has erupted along the reed beds of the River Tay. The area is a nature reserve, and rare breeding birds such as marsh harriers and bearded tits nest among the reeds. Police told people to stay inside and close their windows to avoid the smoke. It took lots of firefighte­rs and a helicopter dumping water several hours to put out the blaze. It’s not yet known how the fire started.
