A former fireman from Biddenham has been recognised as one of UK’s top BME businessmen

Jagtar Singh OBE was named this week in Green Park’s top 100 BME leaders.

Having joined the fire service in 1977, he rose to the rank of Bedfordshire Fire Service’s deputy chief fire officer.

“I am very aware that this the nomination will mean a lot to all those who support me every day to be the best I can be and also who support me to be a champion of equality diversity and Inclusion.”
