Crowthorne Forest Fire - Tuesday Update

So far today, I've not seen any reports of the fire getting worse, but there is traffic chaos around the area because of the road closures.  Avoid it if you can or find an altrernative route in advance.

3 schools are closed.  See comments.

The BBC has picked up the story and has video from the police helicopter on their website:

Wednesdays Update


  1. No not all Crowthorne Schools have closed!! The Schools that are closed are Wildmoor Heath, C of E and Edgbarrow but Oaklands, Hatch Ride and Our Lady's are open.

  2. My apologies, there are various conflicting messages on Twitter from official looking sources! I will makes amends.
