Guernsey

Emergency exercise held at Alderney airport

Alderney's emergency services have been tested in an exercise at the island's airport.

Police, ambulance staff and fire crews took part in the operation earlier, along with members of the island's drama group who were the "casualties".

The exercise was carried out in order to conform with appropriate UK Civil Aviation Authority standards, airport managers said.

Some airlines rescheduled fights to allow the exercise to take place.
