Watched the morning news and an old friend from Crewe appeared. Paul Bickerton, Watch Manager from Cheshire Fire and Rescue, based in Winsford. Paul is part of the international search teams helping out in Christchurch.
Last time I spoke to Paul I think it was about some cycling thing he was training for. One thing is for certain Paul is the thoughtful level headed person you need in such a situation. All the best.
