VIDEO: Mock bus crash evacuation at Sleaford school
Pupils at St George's Academy in Sleaford were part of a mock bus crash this morning to teach them how to act in a real emergency.
The students climbed aboard the bus and were told to pretend it had been involved in an incident.
They were then told to leave the vehicle via the emergency exit in the way they felt would be appropriate in the event of a real emergency.
Crash mats were provided for the pupils to jump on to.

They then had to re-board the bus and were instructed of the correct procedure in which to leave it.
Ian Tomlinson, from Sleafordian Coaches, who was instructing the students, said that the children were surprised how much quicker the exit was the second time round.
He said: "The first time they did it there was mayhem with everyone trying to get out first but the second time round they left in an orderly fashion.
"Most importantly they were told to leave their bags behind."
Pupils were then invited on to a separate 'learning bus' where they could ask questions and were given more safety information from members of the police and fire services.
The event was filmed by the Media department at St George's and will be shown at schools throughout Lincolnshire.
