Fighting fire with drama

Firefighters, academics and Bretton students have joined forces to promote fire safety amongst school pupils in Yorkshire. Undergraduate students have written a play telling the story of a young arsonist and the tragic consequences of his crimes.

The students will tour shools in West Yorkshire from December 3-14, targeting areas prone to arson attacks.

Assistant chief fire officer for West Yorkshire David Monks said: "The drama aims to promote fire safety to young people 'face on', in a way that they can understand and relate to. We want to engage young people in debate and explore the dangers associated with fire and arson."
