London Fire Brigade Rocks

OK, so we admit we've got a soft spot for our city's firefighters and a morbid fascination with their latest incident page but it is genuinely good news for all of us that the London Fire Brigade is officially "performing strongly" according to the Audit Commission latest assessment.

The Commission looked at all fire authorities in England and London was especially praised for its outreach and education work - remember Controversy? Also, their relative success in recruiting from ethnic minorities and their campaign in the EU for "fire safer cigarettes".

They're still failing to attract enough women to the Brigade, though. As firefighters, you understand... This way please, ladies.
