White Watch, from Alfreton Fire Station, took a fire engine along to visit the nursery youngsters at Somercotes Infants & Nursery School, on Nottingham Road.

A station spokesman said: “White Watch had a great morning. The children were so well behaved and had loads of great questions.”

And a school spokesman said: “We got to hear the sirens, sit in the fire engine, have a go with the hose, find out what is on the fire engine and ask loads of questions about firefighters.
