This is the moment a big fire broke out right next to train tracks in Cornwall.

The gorse blaze at Bugle forced a train to have to stop and wait for ten minutes.

Five fire engines from Bodmin to Fowey got the shout to Lower Molinnis just before 5.30pm on Thursday.

Firefighters used hosereel jets and beaters to put the blaze out.

A spokesperson for Cornwall Fire and Rescue Service said: "Five appliances from Bodmin, St Austell and Fowey Community Fire Stations have been in attendance to a fire involving four hectares of high gorse, trees and undergrowth.

"The crew used two hosereel jets and multiple beaters to extinguish the fire."
