Old Cornwall fire appliances go overseas

Cornwall firefighters are sending three appliances to Albania and Kosovo in a scheme to aid developing countries.

Three volunteers from Cornwall and Devon's fire services will leave with the vehicles on 18 September.

They will joined by seven Rotarians on a 1,900 mile trip to Junik and Rahovec, in Kosovo, and Bulqise, in Albania.

The appliances' owner, Cornwall Council, said they were more than 15 years old with little resale value but could save lives where they are going.
