It is hoped a volunteer force who support victims of fires could expand across Cornwall.

The Red Cross team is scrambled alongside firefighters to blazes and floods.

They make sure victims have food, clothes, shelter and a sympathetic ear.

They also help with things like insurance and accommodation.

At the moment our only team is based in Falmouth.

Station Manager Shaun Roberts hopes other places will follow suit, he said: "For a volunteer service and the commitment they put in, to respond at any hour of the day, come out to us give us assistance, they really do look after the people who are in distress and it really is a great asset to the fire service.

"They have got nowhere to go, it's pouring down with rain, so rather than using our resources to look after them, the FES vehicle will arrive on scene, take care of them, look after them, if they need a wash, feeding, and then they will arrange for housing if it's needed in the future."
