The London Fire Brigade unveiled new firefighting equipment on Wanstead Flats earlier this month.

The demonstration of the ‘holey hose’ was in response to the increasing risk of wildfires. “It is a type of fire service hose with pre-prepared holes that creates a curtain of water reaching up to two metres high. The holey hose can be rolled out by all our firefighters, who have been undergoing enhanced wildfire response training in preparation for what could be another challenging summer,” said a spokesperson.
