A convoy of donated fire engines and thousands of pieces of equipment has set off on a three-day journey bound for Ukraine.
Volunteers are taking the 22 vehicles, including fire engines and lorries full of kit, which have been offered by fire services from across the UK.
Charity Fire Aid and the National Fire Chiefs Council (NFCC) sent an initial delivery to the country on 11 March.
The second convoy left Ashford in Kent earlier.
Its leader, Mike Pitney, described the trip as “personal” and told Leakblast.com Breakfast: “I’ve been going out to Ukraine for 10 years, so I have friends and family, as far as I’m concerned, out there.”
