Firefighters put on impressive displays, and showed the public a behind the scenes look at what they do.

There was also entertainment from vehicle displays, choir performances, cheerleading and hip hop dances. Even Paw Patrol paid a visit.

Watch Manager at Worthing Fire Station and event organiser, Darren Wickings, said: “Our Open Days usually attract around 10,000 visitors and I’m hopeful that this will be the biggest and best one yet.

“This year we are extremely fortunate to have a special guest, Kenny Tutt - the winner of Masterchef 2018 – and a fire engine from the hit TV series, London’s Burning.

“A lot of hard work and preparation has been put into making the Open Day a great event and we’re all really excited to meet the local community in a positive environment.”

Any profits made will be given to The Fire Fighters Charity and other local charities.
