Roar England to glory at this weekend’s Rescue Day

An amazing day of family fun will be on offer at this Saturday’s Rescue Day – and you don’t have to miss the football!

For as well as cheering on our emergency services, you’ll be able to cheer on England as they play Sweden in the World Cup quarter-final.

The organisers, who include our partners at Humberside Fire and Rescue Solutions, have arranged for a huge TV screen to beam the match live to the crowds at 7 Lakes Country Park in Crowle, near Scunthorpe.

Among the main attractions will be 999 scenarios featuring road, rail, fire, water and aircraft incidents, where you'll see police, fire and rescue, ambulance, water and rail teams.

The gates open at 9.30am and the opening ceremony takes place at 10.15am. The first displays begin at 10.45am, with a rail crash incident.

In the morning, the Lincs & Notts Air Ambulance and the National Air Police Service (NPAS) helicopters are scheduled to land at Rescue Day, operations permitting while Britain's Got Talent winner Lost Voice Guy, also known as Lee Ridley, will be performing at noon in the north arena, followed by opportunities for photos and autographs at 12.30pm, 1.30pm and 2.30pm.

The Red Devils Parachute Display Team will be making a spectacular landing into the lake at 1pm and events run throughout the afternoon.

Tickets are £10 for adults (16-years-old and over), £5 for children (five to 15-years-old) and free for under five-years-old.

A family ticket (two adults and two children) is £20.
