FIREFIGHTERS and pub regulars will be on the pull through the streets of St Neots on Sunday.

They will be dragging a fire engine to raise money for a summer camp for children who have been badly burned.

Jamie and Louise Redknapp - the former Liverpool footballer and his pop star wife - are patrons of the Burned Children's Club charity and are expected to join in.

The one-mile pull goes through most of St Neots with 32 people - 24 from the pub and eight from the fire service - pulling the fire engine.

The event, which last year raised £5,000, starts at 2pm at B&Q, in Eaton Socon, and ends at the Cambridgeshire Hunter pub, where there will be amusements, plus an auction and raffle at 6pm.
