Ordinary Londoners - No 8 in a series

Shot with Olympus E500
Akram, here, was part of a London Fire Brigade team who had just demonstrated the way they cut people out of cars. It was fascinating to see, and pretty fast, it didn't take much more than 10 minutes to do, all the while explaining what was happening. But, overheard from a lady with a few screaming brats <<"eastendaccent">> Well, you would have thought they could have prepared better and done all this beforehand <<"/eastendaccent">>

Akram really is one of my ordinary Londoners: originally from Afghanistan, now in Ilford Fire Station, he is one of the brave people who might just save your life one day. That's an Ordinary Londoner.

The Ordinary Londoners Series: No 1, No 2, No 3, No 4 No 5 No 6 No 7.

I've always fancied playing with one of those jack things for opening up crashed cars....
