A group of firefighters from Devon and Somerset Fire Service are running 200 miles to show support and solidarity for their colleagues in London who were involved in fighting the Grenfell Tower fire last month.

The six firefighters and officers set off from their headquarters near Exeter this morning and will run in relay to London, aiming to reach North Kensington Fire Station at 8pm tomorrow.

They're hoping to raise thousands of pounds to support the firefighters as they deal with the psychological effects of fighting the Grenfell Tower fire.
