Southampton Airport has spent £1m on two new specially-designed fire engines.

It is thought to be one of the first UK airports to use the vehicles, which have been designed specifically to be used at airports.

The engines of the two new vehicles start automatically and they have infrared cameras and hoses, which can be operated from the vehicle's cab.

The 35-tonne specialist trucks replace the airport's fleet of 20-year-old emergency vehicles.
