Firefighter suspended over sex-in-fire engine investigation

A firefighter in England has reportedly been suspended after a picture of a couple apparently having sex in a fire engine appeared online.

The photo was published in the Sun in June and was said to be "one of a series of explicit images posted on a swingers' website" from a man who said he worked as a firefighter.

Greater Manchester Fire and Rescue Service launched an investigation into the image - which showed equipment bearing its website address inside the engine.

The Manchester Evening News reported that a firefighter had been suspended on Tuesday.

A spokesman for the fire service said: "We are continuing to investigate the circumstances of an incident that appeared in the national media in June.

"A full report will be prepared at the conclusion of that investigation."
