Seven new recruits completed the course in Cardiff and will work at stations across the county - with one set to be based at Stanground Fire Station.

Phil Taylor (36) has moved from Edinburgh where he worked in adult social care with vulnerable adults.

He said: “This is the end of a long journey for me, as I’ve wanted to become a firefighter around ten years. But I know it is the start of another journey and I cannot wait to get started.

“The training has given us all a great insight into life as a firefighter.

“Having some mock calls to respond to at stations gave us that initial understanding of what it’s like to respond to an emergency.”
