A man has been rescued from a tractor on a mountain after getting trapped by a large grass fire.

Firefighters were tackling a gorse fire at Glyndyfrdwy, Denbighshire, when they spotted the man inside the vehicle.

North Wales Fire and Rescue Service was called to the blaze, near Llangollen, just before 16:00 GMT on Tuesday.

The man was taken to hospital, but the extent of his injuries are not yet known. An air ambulance was sent to the scene, but was not needed.

Meanwhile, South Wales Fire and Rescue Service (SWFRS) has been tackling a large grass fire in Cwmbach, Rhondda Cynon Taff, since about 16:45.

Four appliances were sent to the scene, behind Cwmbach Community Primary School.

The fire comes just hours after the fire service announced it was carrying out “prevention work” in Cwmbach.

As well as the Cwmbach blaze, SWFRS also sent four crews to tackle a blaze at Aberdare on Tuesday afternoon.
