A FIREMAN in Japan has lost his job after it transpired he had been driving ambulances and fire engines for the past 20 years without a licence.

The fraud was revealed during a regular check of licences when the man produced the licence of a family member.

A spokesman from Takaoka City, Shigeru Sawasaki, admitted that the unnamed fireman had not been in any accidents and that there had never been a problem with his work.

However, this was not enough to save the job of the man who is now being questioned by police about his lack of driving licence.
