Ilford Fire Station is opening its doors to the public today from 11am-4pm.

Visitors can look around the fire engines, see an inflatable boat used by rescue units and watch a chip pan burst into flames.

There will also be police officers, representatives from Victim Support there and advice about bogus callers.

Martin Knight, watch manager at the station in High Road, Ilford, said: “It’s to show people a bit of what we can do and a chance to look around the fire engines and see what station life’s about, have a bit of fun and get some advice.”
