Emergency services to stage exercise tonight

Don’t be alarmed if you see ‘blues and twos’ rushing to an incident at BAE Systems tonight.

Police tape

The council are advising that an exercise is being staged in Cowes tonight to test the response of the IW Fire & Rescue, Ambulance and Police services to a major incident.

They say there may be some noise from sirens and generators at the BAE Systems site between 5.45pm and 9.30pm as a result of the exercise.
