Norfolk-based staff took part in a car crash demonstration this week to highlight to the public the potentially devastating consequences of drink driving.

Staff from EEAST were joined by colleagues from Norfolk Accident Rescue Service, Norfolk Police and Norfolk Fire and Rescue Service on Tuesday (19th December) for an exercise on an unopened stretch of the Northern Distributor Road (NDR) near Norwich.
