Firefighters took part in a charity run in full uniform to pay tribute to those who died in a terrorist attack.

Roy Wilsher, Hertfordshire County Council’s Director of Community Protection and Chief Fire Officer, took part in the 5K run on Sunday, July.

Assistant Chief Officer Darryl Keen and ten volunteers from Hertfordshire Fire and Rescue Service also took part in the Tunnel 2 Towers run.

The group managed to raise £225 for the Firefighters Charity in the run from Bermondsey through the Rotherhithe Tunnel to Billingsgate Market.

Mr Wilsher said: “The event was a huge success and I would personally like to thank all the fire and rescue service volunteers involved.

“The course was a little longer than the 5km advertised, but given that I had actually completed some training and it was a little cooler than recent weeks, it was not too bad.

“I have a great deal of admiration though for the participants with disabilities and all those who ran in full uniform.”

The run was organised by the London Fire Brigade in memory of British firefighter Stephen Siller, who was one of the 343 firemen who lost their lives when the twin towers collapsed in 2001.
