A group of firefighters from Brighton & Hove are attempting to break the world record for pole dropping.
Green Watch from Hove Community Fire station are also raising money for the Fire Fighters Charity, as well as the Rocking Horse appeal.
The team are planning to climb and slide nearly 7,000 metres up and down a fire station pole that has been put in place at Brighton's Churchill Square between 9am and 5pm today. They want to grab back the record which they set in 2009.
The challenge for the East Sussex Fire & Rescue Service firefighters marks one of the last time the 13 members of Green Watch will be together. Next month one of the fire engines will be taken away from the Hove fire station and the team will be cut down to seven members.
