MADAM - May I take this opportunity to thank the Nailsworth fire station crew of the Gloucestershire Fire & Rescue service who recently attended and rescued my daughter Samantha and her one-year-old son Leo who were accidentally locked in her car when the locking mechanism failed.

Thanks to the crew from Nailsworth who attended promptly, was most helpful and supportive and managed to make an entry and perform their rescue.

On behalf of my self, Samantha and especially Leo who had no idea what was going but seemed to enjoy the action.

Thank you and keep up the good work you are most appreciated.

Mark Rees

Chairman Stroud District Council (Lab, Cainscross)
