  • Description

    Throughout France, most districts have their own methods of civil protection for utilisation in peace or war. At Sussy Bonneuil, Nov 15 - near Paris - workers in various defence services combined in a training exercise involving the derailment of a train supposedly carrying radio-active products.

    Because of possible radiation dangers the accent was on high speed. Civil Defence workers were rushed to the scene and the Fire Brigade quickly established their apparatus and trained water hoses on to the railway trucks.

    Defence workers moved a crane to the spot and climbed to the roof of the train to assist in lowering "bodies" to the ground.

    Meanwhile specialists - in protected clothing - marked out possible radiation areas around the area as crowds of reporters and sightseers looked on.
