YOUNGSTERS at a Bromsgrove nursery had a flaming good time as they were paid a visit by a bright red fire engine.

Firemen came along to Jack and Jill Day Nursery where the children were celebrating the fourth birthday of Anthony Fitzgerald, who was smartly dressed in a fireman's costume of his own.

Nursery owner Pauline Hawkins said: "The kids had a smashing time. They went into the fire engine and a few of them were driven around the block. They were taught all about fire safety too."
