It's a very tall well done to Cornwall Fire and Rescue.

The Penzance crews have raised a huge £447 as part of the Grenfell Tower Ladder Climb, raising funds for the firefighters who tackled the blaze.

It took place on Satuday 12th August and saw them climb the equivalent walking distance from the Penzance station to London and back, totalling 600 miles. 

On Facebook they wrote: "We'll be climbing the equivalent of walking from Penzance Community Fire Station to Kensington Fire Station and if that wasn't far enough - we'll be climbing the equivalent miles all the way back to our home station! That's approximately 600 miles!

"1 climb = 1 mile so we will be doing 600 climbs in total".
