An incident involving a number of casualties and emergency responders will be taking place in Lowestoft this weekend – but all will not be as it seems.
Members of the public are being urged not to be alarmed by what could appear to be a major incident at one of the town's schools.
That is because St John Ambulance will be running a casualty simulation exercise to train its volunteers and staff.
Ian Groves, a spokesman for the charity, said the event at East Point Academy in Kirkley Run on Saturday evening would be part of their continuing professional development.
Mr Groves said: 'This is an event for a number of volunteers at the Lowestoft unit and is likely to appear to onlookers to be a real incident. There will be signs at the entrance to the Academy on the day and a member of the team will also be at the entrance to explain what is happening.
