POLICE have issued an update after an arrest was made in connection with a fire on Ilkley Moor over the weekend.

The blaze - which came less than a month after the devastating Easter weekend fire - broke out on Saturday morning. Ten engines were at the scene at the height of the fire and people were advised to stay away from the area.

By around 12.30pm, the fire was out and the incident was scaled back to four fire engines.

A 48-year-old woman was arrested in connection with the blaze. Providing an update yesterday, a West Yorkshire Police spokesman told the Telegraph & Argus that the arrested woman had been released on bail pending further enquiries.
