A mock car accident has been staged at Belfast City Hall as part of a new hard-hitting road safety campaign.

It is hoped the reconstruction, watched by more than 800 young people from Belfast schools and colleges, will help hammer home the harsh reality of careless driving.

PSNI Superintendent Gerry Murray, head of road policing, said: “I have no doubt that those who attend the roadshow are shocked, perhaps even horrified, by what they see. I hope that after seeing the roadshow they realise that they are not indestructible.”
