Firefighters have raised £1,200 so far after rowing more than 160 miles in a day.

Staff from Bethnal Green station's red watch completed the eight-hour sponsored row on Monday, August 12 raising vital funds for The Fire Fighters Charity which supports members of the fire-fighting community.

Firefighter Nicola Holgate said: "It was hard work but it was really good fun and there was a nice atmosphere.

"We got a lot of support from pedestrians and cars going past the station and it was great to have that motivation - especially towards the end.
