Teenagers who have had problems at school or with police and are at risk of getting into serious trouble have said a course run by East Sussex Fire and Rescue Service has helped them to turn their lives around.

The week-long programme was originally designed to reduce arson attacks. But it has also been found to improve young people's self-esteem and motivation.
