WATCH: Crowds turn out for fire service open day

Visitors turned out in their droves to Northumberland Fire and Rescue Service’s fundraising open day at the weekend.

The free event, at Cramlington’s West Hartford Community Fire Station, gave visitors a behind-the-scenes look at the latest fire and rescue equipment.

Young and old alike were given the chance to try out a driving simulator challenge, drill displays by young firefighters Association and a host of fairground attractions and food and drink stalls will also be on offer.

All proceeds will be donated to the Fire Fighters’ Charity and Northumberland Young Firefighters Association.
