Pictured: Fire crews tackle the flames on the night in April.
One of Britain's largest heathlands has staged a remarkable comeback just five months after it was ravaged by a huge gorse fire.
A massive 330 yard wall of flames destroyed 42 acres of Canford Heath in Poole, Dorset, in April.
The precious habitat for rare reptiles and heather and fauna was left a charred and blackened landscape that looked like something from another planet.
After much needed rain in recent weeks, the hardy heath has sprouted fresh growth of grasses, gorse and bracken to turn the fire-ravaged terrain verdant green.
