Parents have reacted angrily after an episode of Fireman Sam was broadcast depicting Station Officer Steele and Firefighter Elvis involved in what appears to be homosexual intercourse.

However, the show’s creators have defended the decision, stating that the scene was designed to promote inclusivity and inclusion while being sensitive of societal sensitivities.

A clip has been passed to Southend News Network, and in it a discussion about variable pressure from fire hydrants quickly develops into a touching moment where the two men are staring deeply into each others eyes.

Station Officer Steele is then seen asking the Amazon Echo in the Mess for Baker Street, before passions boil over.

Viewers can see around ten seconds of hot and heavy action with the iconic Gerry Rafferty solo playing in the background.

One Facebook commenter said, ‘This is an outrage. I don’t pay my Sky bill for my toddler to sit and watch a grown CGI character take it up the Pontypandy.’

‘I just had to tell him that Firefighter Elvis was choking on a Malteser.’

This is the second time that parents have been outraged by a homosexual sex act this year, after Postman Pat was involved in a similar clinch outdoors a few months ago.
