ON Saturday last fire broke out on the ground floor of 13 Riversdale Road, West Kirby.

This house is made up of three individual flats, and at the time six of us were in occupation when the fire broke out in the electric board.

The emergency services arrived in no time at all, and I would like to take the opportunity to 'thank you' to all three services and each and everybody involved in making sure we were safe.

Never having been in an emergency before I was truly impressed with the care and concern shown by all three services.

I cannot thank them enough.

Thank you to all personnel involved – you really acted quickly and competently, and in particular Constable 5746 who even called into the hospital to see if I was alright.

Thank you so much.
