Dramatic scenes as tanker crushes car in Hull car park – but what’s going on?
A series of dramatic mock-up scenes can be witnessed across Hull city centre.
This dramatic scene of a tanker crushing a car outside the KCOM Stadium will have heads turning this morning.
But thankfully no drivers were harmed as this was a mock crash scene created by the fire service.
Crews are currently practicing in preparation for a major competition taking place in Hull today and Saturday.
Humberside Fire and Rescue Service is hosting this year’s United Kingdom Rescue Organisation (UKRO) Challenge 2017
The event will take place from 9am to 5pm on Friday and Saturday at the KCOM Stadium and Princes Quay.
The UKRO Challenge is an annual UK wide event where teams of professionals from other emergency services within the UK compete against one another.
A series of dramatic scenarios will take place giving members of the public a fascinating insight into the challenges facing the emergency services.
Disciplines being tested include vehicle extrication, involving cutting up cars to safely remove casualties; trauma management; urban search and rescue; rope rescue and water rescue.
There will be a public safety village based at the KCOM Stadium where members of the public can meet fire safety dogs and the Safer Roads Humber team, have a look around a fire engine, find out more about fire safety and take part in fun activities.
At Princes Quay Shopping Centre, teams of professionals will be tested on their water rescue capabilities.
A spokesman for Humberside Fire and Rescue Service said: “With challenges taking place across two city centre locations, it’s a great, fun filled day for the family.”
