By this day, it had become necessary
to shut all the roads around Winter Hill. Accordingly, appliances
were photographed on roads nearby, either arriving or departing the incident.
However, later in the day I was invited on to Saddleworth Moor and attended the holding point at Swineshaw Reservoir.
Large clouds of smoke almost obliterated the television mast on Winter Hill.
Soft-Trak vehicle PN08PSO was seen on Chorley Old Road, Bottom o' th' Moor.
