FIREFIGHTERS staged the dramatic rescue of a motorist from the wreckage of a car to convince youngsters of the dangers of joyriding.
They cut a dummy free from a car before stetchering the `victim’ away for treatment.
It was part of an open day at Moss Side fire station organised by the East Lancashire Amateur Boxing Assocation.
Youngsters also got a chance to test their boxing skills in a ring put up in the station house.
Station commander John Varey said they now hope to make it an annual event.
He said: “It was really successful. It was a demonstration of the dangers of car theft and subsequent accidents.”
