He told reporters: ‘We have to take a great deal of care: a small lapse could spark another enormous tragedy. The answer is not in more ‘means’ (firefighters, water-bombing planes etc.) but in more care. Fire doesn’t start on its own, it is always caused by the human hand.’

Alan Shearer, who’s on holiday in the Vilamoura region of Portugal, has also been documenting the horrifying blazes, describing them as ‘unbelievable.’

‘I’ve never seen anything like this, it’s just catching alight,’ he said. ‘This is the roundabout near Gareth Southgate’s house…Jesus Christ! Someone needs to get here quick.’
