The Hampshire Fire and Rescue Service team recorded footage of themselves travelling through the city’s streets at high speed to get to an emergency call-out.

Firefighters are shown on the film following another fire engine through the city, along busy Winston Churchill Avenue.

The two-minute clip, filmed from inside the fire engine, shows them on blue lights as they make their way through the city to their destination.

The crew can be seen and heard calmly preparing themselves to respond to the job.

The clip ends when the fire engines pull up outside the high-rise block of flats Horatia House in Meriden Road, Southsea.

The film is believed to have been shot as part of a training exercise, which depicts some of the situations and challenged firefighters working for Hampshire Fire and Rescue Service could encounter while on the job.

Firefighters were filmed as part of a training DVD being produced for the fire service.
