Firefighters from Stratford were called to a quad bike fire in Shipston yesterday.

The bike was fully ablaze when firefighters arrived at the scene and a hose reel jet to extinguish the fire.

It is believed to have been caused by a mechanical fault and no other property was damaged by the fire.

The quad was used to pull a trailer to help the volunteers to maintain the cricket and football pitches.

    Now that’s over they can go back to the card games and virtue signalling. In the race to be the profession most thoroughly infected with Marxism, the firefighters are giving teachers a run for their money.
    Next door, in the West Midlands Fire Service, they have lowered recruitment standards for women and non-whites. A serious country wouldn’t tolerate such behaviour. People would rightly be prosecuted.
    Here in good old Warwickshire, the budget for rainbow decals on the trucks doesn’t appear to have suffered the cuts that the roads budget has. Quite what homosexuals have to do with fire i do not know.

    I have known several firefighters over the years and it’s true that they do have a lot of waiting about and maybe even play cards.
    if the need arises however they will put their lives on the line for us so I’m happy to pay them for a bit of card playing in between call-outs.
