Mother takes firefighter son to emergencies in Banbury

Jed and Trudy Boyle

A mother who drove her firefighter son to a fire station in Oxfordshire has been made an honorary crew member.

Trudy Boyle took her son Jed to the station for about a year and a half for call-outs, because he did not have a driving licence.

She has now been recognised for "outstanding nocturnal service to the community of Banbury".

Mr Boyle, 20, a retained part-time firefighter in Banbury, has now passed his driving test.

Ms Boyle, who lives a couple of miles away from the station, said: "Generally during the day he would go on his bike, but if I was home and at night time then I would do it.

"We used to get down there pretty quickly, but I would be in my dressing gown and pyjamas."

Darran Gough, Oxfordshire Fire and Rescue Service Watch Manager in Banbury, said: "We would all like to thank Trudy very much for her help over the past years and wish her many undisturbed nights in the future, so long as Jed doesn't slam the door as he responds!"
