Keighley fire crews were called out twice on Easter Monday to tackle fires started by steam trains.

Cinders from the locomotives set light to banking on the Keighley and Worth Valley Railway.

Firefighters used beaters to extinguish three 10-metre lengths that were alight in Parkwood.

They were later summoned to Ingrow, but train guards had already put out the blazing grass.
