A charity is staging an eight-day event to raise awareness among primary school children of safety issues.
More than 1,300 youngsters from 25 schools are taking part in the Stay Safe initiative, which began on Monday. The project is led by Keighley Worksafe with input from the fire service, British Transport Police and utility companies.
“We believe the skills we are teaching could help save a life, but at the very least children will be more aware of the dangers facing them on a daily basis and what to do to avoid them,” said Dave Towers, of Worksafe.
