Hundreds of people learned to save a life at Cromer Carnival.

Ambulance staff and volunteers gathered at the carnival field in Runton Road to talk to visitors about the work of the East of England Ambulance Service NHS Trust (EEAST).

Staff and community first responders from Overstrand and Cromer taught more than 400 people cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR) as part of the event before the carnival procession.

Visitors could also explore inside an ambulance and Daisy, EEAST’s vintage ambulance.

Diane Chan, EEAST senior locality manager for Central Norfolk, said: “It was a very successful day and everyone had a great time.

“Thank you to all the staff and volunteers who gave up their time to talk about their work and to teach people life-saving skills “Learning CPR is something anyone can do and can resuscitate someone who is unconscious and not breathing.”
