EXCITED youngsters queued to meet one of their heroes at a Burton shopping centre.
Fireman Sam was the latest TV favourite to drop in to Coopers Square.
Delighted children posed for photographs with the popular character who towered over them at the centre.
It was the latest surprise for children, who had already seen the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles drop in last week, with more on the way.
Centre manager Dave Chadfield said: "We wanted to play our part in providing some free summer holiday entertainment for the community and I am pleased to see that families across the area have been able to make the most of the visit."
