Father-daughter firefighting duo respond to same call

It was the first time the pair had worked side-by-side as part of the same crew


The Guardian

LONDON — The country's only father-daughter firefighter duo made history after they were called to deal with a fire together.

Mark Archer, 54, works at Chingford Fire Station, in The Ridgeway, whereas his daughter Victoria Archer-Lee usually works at Shoreditch Fire Station.

But on January 21, 31-year-old Victoria was temporarily working at Chingford station, meaning she was based at the same fire station as her father and rode on the same fire engine for the first time. This is the first time the pair have worked side-by-side as part of the same crew.
