Bexhill’s firefighters will be talking to members of the public about road safety tomorrow (Saturday).

The special event will take place on the seafront near the Bexhill Sailing Club between 11am-4pm.

Crews will be on hand to talk to members of the public about the importance of road safety and taking care when driving.

There will also be a crashed car trailer on display to demonstrate to the public what a car can look like after it has been involved in a collision.

The Command Support Unit will also be on hand for people to have a look at during the day.

And of course, there will also be the opportunity for children to sit in a fire engine.

Crew manager Dean McFaite, from Bexhill Fire Station, said: “As we are heading into summer, the roads in and around Bexhill can get particularly busy with lots of people heading into the town to enjoy the sunshine.

“We want everyone to take care when driving and would like to invite motorists to come along and see us to talk about how they can be safer on the roads.”
