March Community Fire Service has become the first in the county to boast an all female crew.

Posting to its Facebook page the service announced its ground-breaking team to coincide with International Women's Day.

A spokesperson for the service said: "It takes all kinds of people to be a firefighter, from different backgrounds and professions with a diverse range of skills.

"We all have one thing in common, we are passionate about being there for our community when they need us.

"This week one of our fire engines will be responding to incidents with a crew of women. This is not only a first for March, but for Cambridgeshire and Peterborough.

"They have all undergone extensive training, with some taking on additional responsibilities like driving using blue lights and being in charge of the crew managing an incident.

"We are very proud to have the first all women crew, but more importantly we are proud to serve our community."
