RAMBLERS are being warned to observe red flags on Holcombe Moor over the coming days as military live firing exercises return.

The Ministry of Defence (MoD) is set to hold three days of live fire training at its training area from 7am to 11.30pm on March 24, 25, and 26 ­— however it is possible these timings may change.

During this period red flags by day and red lamps by night will indicate that the range is active and live firing is taking place.

The Range Danger Area will be strictly out of bounds to the public on these occasions.

The Defence Infrastructure Organisation, which manages the area, said: “The public have access to the Public Rights of Way on the remainder of the training area at all times, but should be aware that Dry Training may be in progress with Blank and Pyrotechnic Ammunition.

“Do not attempt to touch or remove anything from Holcombe moor training area – it may be dangerous.”
