Norfolk’s Emergency Services showed Year 12 and 13 students at Attleborough Sixth From what happens after a car crash.

At a talk for the #Impact campaign, launched by Norfolk’s Police and Crime Commissioner Lorne Green in 2016, students had a demonstration of what the emergency services do after a road accident.

Thomas Semmons, 19, spoke to students about his personal experience of being involved in a serious road collision and being seriously injured after losing control of his car in bad weather on the B1145.

The Attleborough students also watched a demonstration of how the emergency services rescue someone from a wrecked car.

Student Elliot Lascelles was freed from a car as a demonstration. He said: ”This has made me much more aware of the care that needs to be taken on the road.”
