More than 100 guests, friends and families turned out to celebrate the achievements of the 16 new members.

The teenagers demonstrated a number of skills and drills they had learned, including a car fire, house blaze and a dramatic road crash with an injured driver and a passenger who had smashed through the windscreen.

At the end of the event the young people were presented with their certificates.

Coun Moy said: “I thought I was going to enjoy it before I went but it exceeded all my expectations.

“If this is an example of the Droitwich Spa youth we should all be very proud.

“The young firefighters association provides them with a good grounding for their education.
