Firefighters tested their skills during a training exercise at a historic Wisbech property.

Cambridgeshire Fire and Rescue teamed up with Peckover House on Wednesday.
Five crews were tasked with salvaging precious items from the National Trust property in North Brink, along with rescuing a dummy from a smoke-filled atmosphere. Volunteers and helpers then sorted the items before taking them to a safe area. The exercise allowed crews to test their skills in a historic property along with the museum’s plan.
House manager Ben Ricketts said: “It went really well and the fire crews were happy.”
