SOME girls love Lamborghinis, some are mad about Minis, but Alison Pearman has set her sights on something a bit bigger to drive.
Since Alison, of Chells Way in Stevenage, was a girl she has wanted to get behind the wheel of a fire engine.
She will get the opportunity to do just that at next month's Ladies Driving Challenge charity event, in aid of The Fire Fighters Charity and Grove House Hospice.
All participants will try their hand at manoeuvring a range of different vehicles around Bovingdon Airfield on March 14.

"I've been a keen driver for 20 years but it really goes back to when I was a small girl," Alison explained. "I used to spend my holidays with my Uncle Roy in Devon. He was a lorry driver and big HGV fan and I think the memory of those happy days has always stuck with me."
Other vehicles being driven on the day include ambulances, JCBs, various off-road vehicles, and hopefully a combine harvester.
