Firefighters from Sandringham attended an open day at the recreation ground in Dersingham to show their faces and show off their new drone.

Along with their fire engine there was a range of equipment to show members of the public in a bid to also recruit people into the service.

Many young people were present due to the official opening of the skate park which meant the crew, some of whom were on call, could chat to any one interested in joining up.

Drones are often used in missing persons cases and the nearest drone that the fire service had before this is based at Wymondham. This drone is a major asset for the crew.

Fire fighter Kris Colston said: ”The drone covers West Norfolk so it takes the pressure off the crews at Wymondham.

"It was used in a missing person case in Downham Market and is effective as it can cover fields and areas that would take a lot longer to cover on foot. It has thermal imaging so we also assist the police. “
