Churchgoers go to aid of St Albans firefighters
CHARITY workers from the Plymouth Brethren Christian Church near the Appspond Lane fire have been hailed as “angels” after providing free hot food and drinks to emergency workers.
Members of the Blackwater Lane church have voluntarily been at the recycling depot since the blaze began just after midnight on November 10, prompting many firefighters to say they deserve a medal for their help.
Fireman Lincoln from St Albans fire station said: “They supported us throughout. We’re very, very grateful.”
District commander Ian Markwell said: “We are extremely grateful to the Plymouth Brethren Christian church for their continued support at this incident.
“Their refreshments have proven invaluable in sustaining our crews through long and arduous shifts.”
