How do you know somebody loves their job?

Well, spending five decades doing it and vowing not to retire is a pretty good indication.

Hampshire Fire and Rescue Service legend Chas McGill has today celebrated 50 years as an operational firefighter – the most long-serving in the country.

He is proud to be a part of the service which he says is making positive strides forward in harnessing new technology, great community engagement and the introduction of more women.
