Road Safety Demo For Lord Digby Jones

 

Lord Digby Jones keenly watched Shropshire firefighters as they professionally freed a driver “trapped” in the wreckage of a car in a road safety demonstration in the county.

He later sat inside the car, which had its roof removed, for photos to help publicise the campaign to raise awareness about road safety for business drivers.

The road safety event was organised by the TTC Group in Telford which educates 320,000 road users each year.
