Fire truck needs a bit of help

Sadly, the scooter didn't quite have the pulling power needed!

ONE of the two Newton Stewart Fire tenders visiting Creetown Gala on Saturday had to be towed out from soggy grass - by a Land Rover!

Unfortunately whilst reversing in a very tight space in King George V Park, the rear wheels left the hardcore and became lodged in the boggy ground.

The engine was fitted with a winch on the front so all it needed was an anchor point to ‘self rescue’.

A helpful gentleman came along in his ‘mobility scooter’ to offer assistance but after a few laughs, it was Bob Boan’s 4X4 that saved the day.
