Heroes: the dramatic image of firefighter Hayley Agnew

Hero firefighter Hayley Agnew has described her job as "the best in the world" - while admitting that the now famous photograph of her on the Mourne Mountains would suggest otherwise.

Hayley told the Belfast Telegraph she felt "overwhelmed" by the sudden fame after being pictured looking exhausted and close to tears as she battled Northern Ireland's biggest gorse fire in a decade.
