Berkshire fire team's rescue challenge win

A team of Berkshire firefighters has successfully defended the world championship title for rescuing people trapped in vehicles.

The Royal Berkshire Fire and Rescue Service Extrication team competed against firefighters from across the world at the World Rescue Challenge.

The teams took part in a series of timed, simulated road traffic collision scenarios at London's ExCel Centre.

The Berkshire team won the challenge title last year and in 2009.
