Training piloted to reduce farm accidents

A new initiative aimed at reducing accidents on farms is being piloted in Oxfordshire.

Last year, 41 workers were killed in accidents on farms, according to the National Farmer's Union.

Of those, 14 died after being hit by agricultural vehicles.

A new scheme being trialled involves training wives, girlfriends and daughters to get the message across to the rest of their families
