Wiltshire emergency crews to stage disaster exercise

The way emergency services in Wiltshire are able to cope with a large scale disaster is to be put to the test.

The county's fire and rescue service and Great Western Ambulance Service will hold a major exercise in Swindon at 19:00 GMT on Monday.

It will test how paramedics and firefighters deal with a major road accident, with people trapped and injured.

The exercise will take place at European Metal Recycling in Gipsy Lane.
