Firefighter Josh Hunt was coordinating the event, which raised money for the Firefighters’ Charity, and he was pleased to see so many families enjoying the displays from the ‘blue light community’.

There were also local policing teams, LIVES first responders and Lincolnshire Emergency Blood Bikes represented.

Entertainment included a Teddy parachute drop, crews demonstrating car crash rescues and youngsters had a go with a fire hose – plus a Hurricane flypast.

Josh added: “It is good for people to know we are here and see some of the things they might not normally get to see.”
