hi Ian,

Sadly, no I haven't. Where I lived in Shiney Row we were covered by Durham's Fence Houses station and Tyne and Wear's Grindon for initial response. Sunderland's ET was further away but I can only ever remember seeing the Bedford ET from Fence Houses at one fire and that was Shiney Row Working Men's Club in 1984 and it was too dark as it was at night and I only ever saw it, as here, from the front when seen at the station.
