EMERGENCY services have joined forces in aid of charity.

Hertfordshire Fire and Rescue Service and Hertfordshire Constabulary have made Herts in Trust their official charity.

Set up by Hertfordshire Constabulary in 2003, Herts in Trust aims to secure safer communities in the county through tackling crime, substance misuse and lowering anti-social behaviour.

Chief fire officer Roy Wilsher said: "I very much look forward to supporting the excellent work of Herts in Trust over the coming years.

"Hertfordshire Fire and Rescue Service already work very closely with the community and we see this as a way of supporting local people further."

Herts in Trust has so far awarded over 40 grants to organisations, totalling £85,000.

Trustee for the project David Wray said: "We are delighted with the Herts in Trust grant as it will allow us to start our ambitious project aimed at getting young people off our streets."
