In 1965, the fire service revealed the first hydraulic platform of its kind in the local area.

It would become a useful piece of equipment to help the fire service with their emergency call outs. But nowadays, most of the local fire services will now have one each.

Our thanks goes to Rod Norton for providing this photograph.

Mr Norton was in the Lindsey County Fire Brigade for 15 years from 1965.
