Emergency services to mock-up a mass evacuation of Leeds Arena



Have your say

Emergency services will be descending on the Leeds’ First Direct Arena this afternoon - but it’s all for a large-scale training session.

West Yorkshire fire service, ambulance and police will be taking part in the event today, which has been organised by the arena.

About 150 volunteers have also been recruited to help the services train for a mass evacuation of the venue.
