AN OPEN day hosted by Lancashire Fire and Rescue Service saw many young children dress up in uniform.

Families attended the open day in Byrom St, Blackburn, on Saturday July 20 where the fire service put on demonstrations cutting off car roofs.

Children enjoyed dressing up and face painting, with fun rides, snacks and a close look at the stinger.

A raffle was also held with a TV being one of the big prizes won on the day.

The open day ran until 4pm, and was free to attend.
