Winchester hospital 'dirty bomb' exercise


Staff at the Royal Hampshire County Hospital have been practising their response to a toxic bomb explosion in Winchester city centre.

A mock major incident was staged earlier to see how the hospital would cope in the event of a disaster.

Volunteers acted as casualties to test the hospital's emergency procedures.

The exercise was centred around the accident and emergency department and also involved fire and rescue crews and the police.
