PUPILS looked on in fascinated horror as one of their teachers was cut from the wreckage of a car in the school playground.

Fortunately, it was only an exercise, designed to teach students at Warren Comprehensive School about the importance of road safety.

The mock road traffic accident (RTA) was hosted last Tuesday (March 18) by the fire brigade and was the first of its kind in the borough.

The event began with the Year 10 students being briefed in the school hall where they were shown a presentation, including several graphic images depicting the consequences of ignoring road safety.
