Slideshow: Crowds flock to emergency services day at Newstead Abbey

The sun shone brightly as the crowds descended on Newstead Abbey on Sunday for the second Emergency Services Day held at the historic venue.

Thousands of people of all ages watched teams from the county’s emergency services demonstrate their skills - witnessing a road traffic collision scenario and a dramatic Sea King helicopter and boat ‘rescue’ on the park’s lake.

Other attractions included the chance to take a closer look at vintage and modern fire engines and police vehicles, come face to face fire dogs, watch the police dogs put on a display and see how forensic investigators analyse a crime scene.
