‘Unfortunately, not everyone in the area was as understanding, we had vehicles pressing their horns for us to move, cars driving too fast and close to our firefighters.

‘We did try to keep as much of the road open as we could, we could have closed much more off, we understand we have a fine balance to keep our firefighters safe and let the public go about their daily business.
