Equipment donated by Cornish fire crews arrives in Kosovo.

It took Rotary International six days to drive stuff like breathing kits, hoses and uniforms across Europe.

It will be dished out to the region's 27 fire stations.

Barry Kressinger, Rotary International OPT coordinator, said: "The redundant equipment will be of fantastic value to other Kosovo users in growing countries abroad. The team took three hours to load the vehicle with the help of many Rotarians and a serving fire officer from Liskeard. It was an extremely rewarding day and one that has all of us smiling with a terrific sense of achievement, and knowing in the future all this equipment will be in use within weeks and will be saving lives in the future."

Councillor Lance Kennedy, Cornwall Council portfolio holder for community safety and public protection, said: "As ever, I am pleased that we are able to help our colleagues in the wider fire service community and that they can benefit from our redundant equipment. While we are able to invest in new technologies and updated equipment, this is not the same experience for many countries where fire and rescue services are developing."
