Brent council chiefs are reminding people that BBQs are banned in all the borough’s parks.

It comes after the London Fire Brigade issued a temporary ban on all BBQs in parks across the capital due to the high risk of fire if they are left unattended during the current heatwave.

A council statement said: “In Brent, we already have a complete ban on BBQs in our parks, however this is an opportunity for us to remind residents about the increased risk of fire due to the hot weather.

“We appreciate that residents will want to enjoy the hot weather, however please remember your safety at all times.

“Perhaps you may consider alternatives such as arranging a picnic instead.”

Allotment holders are asked not to burn any green waste during this heat wave, to reduce the possibility of fire spreading.
