Fire Doors Can Save Lives !

Assistant Chief Fire Officer, Chris Lowther, Tyne and Wear Fire and Rescue Service said: Deaths and injuries caused by drink driving devastate families and communities. "People who drive under the influence of drink or drugs may easily kill or injure not only themselves, but other road users and pedestrians, ruining the lives of many. "I hope this re-construction has demonstrated the need to keep our roads safer and reduce the number of drink driving incidents emergency services have to deal with in the future. Chairman of Tyne and Wear Fire Authority, Councillor Tom Wright said: "I would like to take this opportunity to thank all partners involved in this exercise, particularly South Tyneside Council for assisting with the road closure and Jarrow Coachworks for donating the cars used in the demonstration. This exercise has beena valuable training opportunity for crews and anexcellent way topromote the devastating consequences ofdrink driving." Northumbria Police Chief inspector John Heckels, head of the forces Operation Dragoon road safety initiative, said: We will not tolerate any form of drink or drug driving on the regions roads. So far this month we have already arrested 81 people for drink or drug driving offences and we will continue to test anyone involved in a collision or anyone who has been driving suspiciously. Driving while under the influence of either drink or drugs could lead to an innocent person being killed on our roads and it is shocking that people continue to take that risk. "We are committed to doing all we can to make sure the roads are safe for everyone this Christmas and we are better equipped than ever before to take offenders off the roads. "To help make our campaign work we still need the public's help and we need people to tell us who the drink and drug drivers are so we can take action. "Reporting these people could help to save lives and make a real difference out on the roads." Paul Liversidge, Chief Operating Officer, at North East Ambulance Service, said: Frontline staff at North East Ambulance Service can attend hundreds of road traffic collisions in their career, including those caused by drink driving. Many of these collisions can be serious traumatic and life changing events for both the patients and their loved ones, as well as our crews who come to their aid every day. This initiative builds on the work of Operation Dragoon and the festive drink and drug campaign. By supporting such campaigns, we hope to help drivers consider the wider impact of such an incident before they get behind the wheel. Councillor Tracey Dixon, Chairman of the South Tyneside Community Safety Partnership and Lead Member for Area Management and Community Safety at South Tyneside Council, added: We fully support this initiative. Its important to raise awareness of the consequences of driving under the influence of alcohol or drugs, particularly around this time of year when people are enjoying themselves over the festive period.

"The thing with Manchester United is that he will go to one Premier League team and won't be going to another [after that]," he toldThe Guardian. "There is one chance you have one chance to get him. He won't go to Manchester City and then to United; he is not going to go to Chelsea and then United. "It won't happen, so you have got one chance to get the best manager on the planet.Is Guardiolabetter than what they have got? That is what United and City should be asking. If the answer is yes then you go for it, surely. "It is like with the best players in the world if someone like Cristiano Ronaldo or Lionel Messi becomes available, everyone is interested. I don't think it is different with a great manager. "The best manager in the world is definitely Guardiola and when he becomes available people are going to be interested, and I think United are no different." Ferdinand believes the United job is still hugely attractive despite the club's failure to win a trophy since Alex Ferguson's retirement in 2013. "Every manager on the planet, probably bar the man at Manchester City, would love the Man United job," said the former England international. "It is a huge job. Especially now, it is a job where, if you go in and do well, you will be seen as a hero someone who has turned it around. "It is a tantalising job.
