Firefighters in Cambridgeshire have shown their creative side after hitting 2,500 followers on Instagram last week.
One of our region’s fire crews celebrated the “great achievement” by laying out hoses, chimney rods and gloves used during road traffic collisions to read 2,500.
The firefighters in St Neots only spent 30 minutes putting the picture together. The team also brought out two fire engines for the celebratory snap.
A spokesman for Cambridgeshire Fire and Rescue said: “Reaching this many followers is a great achievement as it’s a channel that is still relatively new to our service.
“This is an increase of more than 50 per cent in a year. We find it’s a useful way to reach and engage with a different audience.”
