Now this is precisely the type of story that really needs a picture.
Perhaps the HT could have dispatched a photographer or attempted to get one off of someone who no doubt took one on a smart phone.

2 sentences and no allusion to the ending of the Italian Job. Very poor..

Most of us have phones with cameras, I would have thought that a fire crew would have a camera issued or otherwise between them.

Emergency Service crews have a job to do at the scene of any incident. Taking photos for the benefit of newspaper readers isn't one of them. In some emergency services - including mine - it would constitute a disciplinary offence.
