Press/Media: Expert comment

Description

The article uses a quote from Dr Gail Millin-Chalabi's interview on the BBC One's The Sunday Show "One of the things to bear in mind is we are seeing hotter, drier, longer summers in the UK and this was predicted back in 2013 when wildfire was first identified as a risk in the UK".

"We are seeing larger, more severe wildfires here. We had the largest number of burnt areas of 30 hectares or larger in 2022, with 151 in total for the wildfire season."
