They were called to the park to a bonfire firstly at 10.11pm with one engine at the scene.

However, a spokeswoman said there was "no risk to persons or property and a responsible adult was in attendance so no fire service action was required".

Crews attended nearly three hours later to attend to a quantity of rubbish being on fire.

The spokeswoman said: "We were also called shortly before 1am after reports of a quantity of rubbish on fire, this was extinguished with a high pressure hose reel.

"Crews were only there for 15 minutes."

Meanwhile, the fire service shared footage of them tackling a blaze on Warrington Road, Rainhill.

The service said: "Firefighters quickly extinguish a fire in an entry in Warrington Road, Rainhill, before it spreads. Crews across Merseyside have been working very hard to contain multiple fires on a very busy evening."

Statistics of the number of call-outs the service dealt with last night are expected to be issued shortly.
