Festival of Rescue sees firefighters showcase skills

More than 300 firefighters from around the UK are putting their skills to the test during a mass exercise on the banks of the River Tyne.

The Festival of Rescue has attracted hundreds of spectators to the Newcastle and Gateshead quaysides. Teams are taking part in challenges designed to showcase the expertise they bring to bear on everyday situations. These include rope and water rescues, trauma care, and cutting people out of damaged vehicles. Covid vaccinations are also on offer as part of the event, with no need to book ahead.
