DELEGATES from Hong Kong paid a visit to Huntingdon fire station to find out more about the way the service works in the UK.

The 21-strong group from the Hong Kong Services Department was headed by Charles Chu, the newly elected International President of the Institution of Fire Engineers (IFE), and Joe Kwok, the director of the Hong Kong Fire Services.

They watched Huntingdon's blue watch perform its duties at a mock road traffic collision, and were shown around the fire station and its facilities.

Mr Chu said: "The visit was both informative and interesting. It allowed us to compare both the similarities and differences between the way firefighters operate in the UK and Hong Kong."
