Three Jersey firefighters have completed the 9/11 Tower challenge to mark the 20th anniversary of the tragedy and raise money for the Fire Fighters charity. 

Matt Ahier, Richie Wilson, and Marcin Mietelka each climbed 2,071 steps in full uniform, which is the equivalent of climbing 110 floors of the Twin Towers. 

343 firefighters were among the 2,977 who died in the attacks on September 11th 2001. 

The Jersey crew observed a minute silence to reflect and remember those who went to work on that fateful day and never came home.

The trio have raised £700 so far.

The Fire Fighters Charity offers specialist, lifelong support for members of the UK fire services community.
