Emergency services have been called to a 'plane crash' in London as part of a large-scale test exercise. Two hundred and twenty firefighters and police descended on the Docklands area, after a scene was recreated, based on the scenario that a plane has crashed into a building and blown up.
The team have spent four weeks building the crash site, which includes a real fuselage from a Boeing 737 plane, installed in a derelict mill along with 300 tonnes of rubble.
