A WARNING has gone out to people not to have barbecues at beauty spots after several fires on the Lickey Hills.

Fire crews were called out to put out the blazes which have all happened at the country park over the past few days.

People had left disposable barbecues to smoulder away in the open, leading to grass left dry in the hot weather, to set alight.
