Make-up team creates Army bomb casualties


Using make-up and prosthetics, Linzi Foxcroft from Trauma FX turns actors into bomb blast casualties.

They are part of a Camp Bastion simulation exercise in Strensall, York, which trains medical staff before they are deployed to the front line.

Non-English-speaking actors are used to play the local population, while others, such as Olaf Jones, are amputees.

Olaf previously served with the Royal Air Force for 20 years and lost his arm during an Isle of Man TT motor race accident in 1997.
