The head of Scotland's largest fire brigade has claimed health and safety law is preventing firefighters from saving lives.
Strathclyde's fire chief Brian Sweeney also said it was time for a change in the law to protect his staff from prosecution when rescues went wrong.
His comments follow a fatal accident inquiry into the death of a woman whose rescue was delayed for safety reasons.
Alison Hume died after being trapped in a mine shaft for six hours.
