Mountain Rescue among teams in simulated train derailment

This morning several emergency services including Hope Valley Mountain rescue took part in a simulated train crash inside a tunnel. 

A bus was used to simulate the crash with 21 casualties on board which needed rescuing.

A great learning day for all involved and a special thanks to @RRT_UK #Leeds for keeping our bellies full.

In attendance was West Yorkshire Fire and Rescue, Network rail, local police among other services. This was really a multi agency exercise.

The exercise took place at in a in Standedge Tunnel in Marsden near Huddersfield. While we hope they never have to use these skills its always good to practice.
