A firefighter has apparently been suspended after a picture of a couple having sex in a fire engine appeared online.
X-rated photos of the couple were published on a UK swinger’s website by a person claiming to be ‘genuine fire crew’ back in June.
One photo in particular clearly showed the brigade’s website address on the side of a vehicle.
Greater Manchester Fire and Rescue Service launched an investigation into the image and after four months since the accusations surfaced, a senior source confirmed a firefighter has now been suspended.
The investigation was launched by Assistant County Fire Officer Geoff Harris, who promised to catch the culprit.
Earlier this year, a spokesman for the fire service said: ‘I cannot believe we’re still seeing highly inappropriate images like this on the fire service in 2017. It’s not who we are.
‘They are professional and diligent. Crews will be embarrassed by this at best. Most people will be furious at the suggestion this is acceptable behaviour or a reflection of how we behave. It isn’t.’
Yesterday, a spokesperson for GMFRS said: ‘We are continuing to investigate the circumstances of an incident that appeared in the national media in June. A full report will be prepared at the conclusion of the investigation.’
