Electrical services manager Chris Cornell, 43, joins Cottenham Fire Station and chef Mark Minns, 26, joins Manea Fire Station.

Group Commander Simon Newton, who presented the recruits with their certificates at the pass-out parade, said: “I am always humbled by the commitment and sacrifice made by our on-call staff to provide essential emergency cover to their local communities.”
