A fire service hopes the next generation of firefighters will be inspired by its photography exhibition for Black History Month.

The exhibition features portrait photographs of South Yorkshire Fire and Rescue staff with African and Caribbean heritage.

They were shot by Orestes Rix, a member of the finance team who specialises in photography outside his day job.

The exhibition will tour Sheffield this month.

Delroy Galloway helped organise the exhibition, called Family, as well as being photographed.
