Cornish fire victims are going to get more help to come to terms with their ordeal.

A Red Cross team is now attending blazes alongside firefighters.

Their specially adapted van will provide somewhere for families to wait, make an action plan and talk things through.

Volunteer Frankie Boyd said:

“Somewhere were they’re warm and dry, somewhere potentially where their children have got somewhere to sit watch DVDs and we’ve got some toys, to give them a cup of tea and really someone to listen. I think when people have a crisis, like losing all your possessions. It gives them an opportunity to find some peace.

“Everyone goes through that panic situation. I can’t imagine what it’s like losing your home, but it must be very upsetting and as volunteers we’re trained to listen and to offer almost a counselling service for the emotional side.”
