YOUNGSTERS from across Redcar & Cleveland are being given important safety messages this week, as part of a popular annual event.

Nearly 1,200 pupils from the Boroughs primary schools are taking part in Crucial Crew, an initiative which offers practical advice on everything from electricity and fire safety to the perils of playing near railway lines and rivers.

Experts from various agencies are on hand at Redcar & Cleveland College, in Corporation Road, Redcar, to teach young people how to cope in a variety of potentially dangerous situations.

The initiative - arranged by Redcar & Cleveland Community Safety Partnership - is now in its 18th year and runs all week until Friday, June 29.

Councillor Steve Goldswain, Redcar & Cleveland Borough Councils Cabinet Member for Community Protection, said such events were vital.

"Crucial Crew has been a hugely popular scheme for many years, giving important safety messages to our young people," he said.

"We hope that the hundreds of pupils attending will take these on board and that they will stand them in good stead for the future."

Agencies involved in the scheme are Redcar & Cleveland Community Safety Partnership, Redcar & Cleveland Borough Council, Cleveland Police, James Cook Hospitals Foundation Trust Health Improvement Service, Cleveland Fire Brigade, Northern Power Grid, British Transport Police and the Royal Lifesaving Society.
