Church volunteers came to the rescue of firefighters by feeding them while they battled the recycling centre blaze that has been burning for 11 days.

A team from the Plymouth Brethren Christian Church in Hemel Hempstead has been feeding the firefighters with bacon sandwiches, sausage rolls and hot drinks since last Sunday just after the fire started in Appspond Lane.

Recently more than 50 MPs signed a Commons motion calling for the Charity Commission to let the church group be a registered charity after it banned the organisation stating it didn’t think it did enough work in the community.

The group has teams across the country that feed emergency service workers at major incidents.
