FIRE safety was the hot topic at a Scarborough nursery as an engine and its crew paid a visit.

Youngsters at Bairnswood Nursery, in Lady Edith’s Drive, enjoyed a full tour of one of Scarborough’s fire engines as crew talked to them about fire safety.

Nursery co-owner Vicky Martin said: “We organised the visit to tie in with a fire drill to really send home the message of fire safety.

“The children were all very good and listened to what the firefighters told them.

“They also really enjoyed looking round the engine. They liked listening to the sirens and watching the lights, and learnign about what the firefighters do.”
