Firefighters tackled a large grass fire on Dartford Heath on Saturday afternoon.

A crew from the town were called to the heath at shortly after 5pm and found about 100 square metres of grass alight.

Firefighters used beater and water back-packs to fight the flames and spent about 45 minutes at the 314 acre site to making sure they were out.
