College students were given a safety display with impact this week, as police road safety campaign was brought to the borough.
Norfolk Police's #Impact campaign was launched by police and crime commissioner Lorne Greene last month, and was taken to Great Yarmouth College on Monday to raise awareness of road safety.
At the event, 18-year-old Thomas Semmons spoke to students about his personal experience of a serious road collision, complete with the damaged remains of his car.
Thomas, from Scarning, was seriously injured after losing control of his car on the B1145, and his wrecked vehicle was brought to the event as a visual aid.
The event also saw a practical demonstration of somebody being cut out of a wrecked vehicle and a presentation by Norfolk's Road Policing Team on Fatal Four.

Simon Rimmer, chief executive officer of the college said: 'It is truly horrifying to learn the number of deaths and serious injuries arising from road traffic accidents in our region, particularly in young drivers.
'I am pleased the college is able to support this campaign.'
