Wisbech firefighter Adrian Moore has hung up his helmet after 30 years of fire fighting.

The 51-year-old served his entire three decade career at Wisbech Fire Station after joining in 1984.

Watch Commander Phil Pilbeam said: “He was a very professional, competent and capable firefighter who was a joy to work with.

“Adrian never had a bad word about anyone and is a very humorous and happy person, which the crew will miss.

“He always lightened the mood nearly every day and was someone I could turn to for advice because of the experience and time spent in the Service.

“Adrian always had the potential to progress his career further as he was a fantastic firefighter but loved to be on the frontline serving his community.”

Mr Moore, who lives in Wisbech, retired last month and was presented with a fire fighting figurine as well as a photo album highlighting his time at the station.
