LAST Wednesday (June 28, 2017), Greater Manchester Fire and Rescue Service hosted the BBC as they brought the Crimewatch Roadshow to the brand new Safety and Training Centre in Bury.

The Operational Training Team helped re-create a road traffic collision, where reporter Michelle Ackerley assisted crews with the extraction of a live casualty.

In the 45 minute live episode, Michelle chatted with Crew Manager Mike Dewar and met our Fire Scene Investigation dog, Ace. The show was a fantastic opportunity to highlight the great investigation work that we do.

A public appeal for more information on an unsolved arson case in Lancashire was also broadcast.

After the live show, Michelle tweeted her thanks to the crew who helped bring the programme together. She said: “Thanks to @GMFRS_SC for today's @BBCCrimewatch filming. Fantastic to gain an insight into your training & all the hard work that you do.”

Greater Manchester Police and Lancashire Constabulary also participated in the live episode.

The show has broadcast live every weekday morning on BBC One from 9:15am – 10am for four weeks. The roadshow travels to various locations across the country, showcasing the hard work of teams as well as appealing for the help of the general public in solving crimes.
