Firefighters joined Ferncumbe school pupils to recreate the Great Fire of London in their latest lesson.

The Hatton pupils were showed how the 1666 fire started, spread and was tackled using buckets of water - before the recreated city street they made was set alight.

Class teacher Anne Clewley said: “It was a very exciting morning and the children really enjoyed the live demonstration given by the firefighters. “They learnt a great deal by watching the fire spread, including just how dangerous fire can be.

“I would like to say a huge thank you to all of the firefighters who came today.”
