Pub manager Jennifer McGeachie is the toast of the local fire stations after feeding 70 exhausted firefighters who has just spent three hours rescuing two trapped workmen when the roof of a house opposite collapsed.

Fire teams from Slough, Windsor, Bucks and London had rushed to the house in Springfield Road, Windsor at 9.30am today. They were on the scene for four and a half hours, freeing the trapped men and making the house safe.

Jennifer and her fellow managers Louie Blackman and Alfie Horne have just taken over at the Alma pub, which is almost opposite the affected house.

As the firefighters prepared to leave the scene Jennifer invited them all in.

She said: "It was an absolute pleasure to be able to do it.

"There were about 70 of them and our chef came in specially to make bacon butties for them. There was also big demand for bottles of water and Coca-Cola.

"It was the least we could do."

One firefighter said: "We are really grateful to the Alma - they were wonderful to do it."
