Mock crash teaches life-saving skills to pupils

A mock school bus crash, thought to be the first of its kind in the country, has been staged in Lincolnshire, to teach children how they should react in a real-life emergency.

The exercise at St George's Academy in Sleaford, involved dozens of year 7 students.

It is designed to test how quickly the students could escape. One of two buses was also filled with smoke so the children could see how hostile conditions can become in an emergency. The exercise will now be used to teach children life saving skills across the county.
