Grecotel Corfu Imperial

The deputy mayor of Corfu says firefighters should have "finished" with the blazes by the end of the day.

Speaking to BBC Radio 4's PM programme, Theofanis Skembris notes that while fires - earlier blamed on arsonists - are still burning in three places, they are under control.

Skembris also insists the fires are confined to the mountains and are not currently endangering any lives or properties.

"It's no problem for anyone who likes to come to Corfu to come," he adds.
