TWO fire appliances have set off to make the journey from Fife to begin a new life in Mexico.

The International Fire and Rescue Association waved the vehicles off on their journey.

The engines are the 115th and 116th vehicles which have been sent abroad by the charity and were packed with vital firefighting and rescue equipment as well as uniforms.

Thanks to the Scottish Fire and Rescue Service and Diageo, they were serviced and brought back into action to help serve the people of Mexico.
