Issac loves fire engines – now he’s written a book!

YOUNG Issac Blake from Swanage loves fire engines so much he is writing a series of children’s books about them.

The six-year-old’s first one, written and illustrated with his grandmother Dawn Reid, is called Yumpy the Unimog, based on an engine at Warehem Fire Station.

Both his father, Liam Blake, and his grandfather, Tom Reid, are firefighters there. The books will show the variety of vehicles the fire service uses.

Half of the money from each book sold will go to the Firefighters Charity, which supports fire service personnel with their physical and mental health.

Yumpy The Unimog is available through Amazon at
