  • Of course a quick cut & paste job from the Fire Service's facebook account saves the inconvenience of having to pay for proper reporters.

  • This is local news ? Its like saying Mcdonalds sold some cheese burgers or taxi drivers gave people lifts home after a night out ! The Fire Service were called out to do their job too , i reckon the Police also arrested some people for Crimes yesterday too . But none of that's been reported by Ipswichstar , think of the other local news stories there could have been , would have made great reading . Perhaps they'll do it later today ?
