Firefighters have faced yet another battle to douse flames engulfing Chobham Common.

They worked though the early hours last Friday morning after being called to the Common just off Staple Hill Road soon after midnight and were there until 2.30am.

Crews from Chobham, Chertsey and Woking attended and were joined by specialist units from Egham , Guildford, Farnham, Woking and Camberley.

Woking fire station posted on its Facebook page: "Crews worked throughout the night and into the early hours to prevent a fire on Chobham Common spreading. Crews from several fire stations were met with a large fire front. With a quick and appropriate response, firefighters surrounded the fire and contained it. The cause of the fire is still under investigation."

Chobham Common - believed to be the largest national nature reserve in the south east - is notorious during hot weather for fires and multiple simultaneous flare-ups were reported last month.
