Mice caused firefighter to abandon station


The officer was sent to open the building at Waltham Abbey, Essex, but fled after spotting the tiny creatures and refused to start the night-shift.

The station was closed for two hours on December 5 until the firefighter was ordered back to work by bosses.

Waltham Abbey has a single fire engine and is crewed by regulars during the day but at night retained part-timers take over and answer any emergency calls.

A fire brigade insider said: “He may have a phobia about mice which is odd because firemen have to deal with all sort of animals in their work – including things like angry bulls – so a mouse should not have been a problem. “
