Firefighters have helped to deliver dozens of cases of hand sanitiser to care homes throughout Stirling and Clackmannanshire.

Crews teamed up with Doune's Deanston Distillery to deliver the goods.

Deanston Distillery has taken to producing sanitiser in response to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic.

The distillery has enjoyed a positive relationship with firefighters for a number of years, with crews using the site for training.

Watch Commander Dougie Morrison said: "We have a good partnership with the local distillery.

"They phoned us to let us know they had 40 cases of sanitiser and asked if we could help deliver it to care homes.

"We were delighted to help and jumped in our cars and vans to get it done."

WC Morrison continued: "We were able to deliver to care homes in Stirling and the surrounding areas. The homes were delighted and it was all very well received.

"My thanks goes to Deanston Distillery who made this possible."
