Firefighters from Cambridge showed they are hot stuff in kayaks - and they hope to get in the record books as a result.

A team of six based at Cambridge Airport swapped hoses for paddles and trekked across The Wash, to raise money for three charities.

Tony Garner, Liam Wood, Matthew Lee, Rebecca White, David Birks and Richard Baker were cheered by as crowd of onlookers as they navigated their way across the estuary to Hunstanton.

They were sponsored by Hunstanton Kayaks, which provided the kayaks, safety advice and navigation training, and raised Ł1,500. The money has been distributed equally between the Royal National Lifeboat Institution, East Anglia’s Children’s Hospices and the East Anglian Air Ambulance.
