A fire station opened its doors to the public on Saturday in a bid to teach people about fire safety.

Firefighters in Tooting Fire Station, Trinity Road, Tooting, hosted a range of activities and gave visitors a taste of what it is like working for the London Fire Brigade.

Visitors had the chance to view fire engines up close, meet Tooting fire crew and even have a go on a hose.

Firefighters also gave out kitchen fire safety advice and took part in fire demonstrations.
