Fire crews test 'eco-nozzle'

Firefighters in Staffordshire are testing a new type of nozzle designed to reduce the amount of water needed to tackle fires.

Developed in the county, the nozzle uses just a third of the amount of water typically used by crews.

Fire officer Dermot Hogan said the "water mist" hose could allow firefighters to do the job "safer and better".
