A temporary base has been found in Doddington for Cambridgeshire Search and Rescue (CamSAR).
The voluntary rescue team that helps police search for vulnerable missing people has a main storage space in the village. However
further space for vehicles and kit will continue to be needed at Cambridgeshire Fire and Rescue Service’s station in March and the Littleport depot of East Cambs District Council.
The search for a new temporary base was launched in June after Fenland District Council’s centre, where the team’s vehicles and equipment were stored in Chatteris since early 2014, was made unavailable.
Wayne Bent, one of the team’s search managers, said: “We’re very grateful for the support that was extended to us, from people simply spreading the appeal far and wide, to those offering spaces, and those who helped to flesh out the details of this new temporary arrangement.

“Operating will certainly be a bit trickier now than before, and it’s not ideal for maintaining as well as quickly deploying our various pieces of equipment on callouts, but we can continue our work mostly as before.
“That’s great for us and great for vulnerable people in our county.”
