BUILDING work is set to start on the new multi-million pound fire station for the East of Exeter.

The £2.4 million station being built on an area of land at the Police Headquarters, at Middlemoor, will be supported by two crews at the Topsham retained station.

The major investment will mean that the area of Exeter will have two whole time fire stations for the first time since the end of the Second World War.

The new fire station will be built with direct access onto the Sidmouth Road, opening up the east of the city, where there has been substantial residential and industrial development in recent years, and the M5 and A38.

The chief fire officer Paul Young said the new station will improve response times and provide better facilities for fire fighters.
