A huge wildfire which has destroyed more than 20 square miles of grassland in Moray will “take days” to put out, according to the fire service.

About 70 firefighters have spent a second day tackling the blaze which is close to two wind farms.

The alarm was raised shortly before 15:00 on Monday after flames were spotted near Paul’s Hill wind farm at Knockando, south west of Elgin.
