Fire training for offshore workers at Newcastle Airport

Offshore workers will be trained in firefighting skills at a new training centre on Tyneside.

About 6,000 people every year are expected to visit Offshore Training Newcastle which has a mock platform rig and a helipad.

It is hoped the base at Newcastle Airport will be used to train offshore workers from around the world.
