ROUND UP: Scrap cars appeal, youth band hit and free childcare

Surrey Fire and Rescue Service appeal for scrap cars

Firefighters are appealing for old cars to help them practice rescuing people from crashes.

Surrey Fire and Rescue Service needs scrap vehicles to use in training for dealing with collisions on the road.

The service needs around 30 cars and is willing to arrange free collection from anywhere in Surrey or on its border.

Anyone with a scrap car they would like to donate should call fire headquarters on 01737 242444.

The charity concert, featuring music by Ron Goodwin, Gustav Holst, Philip Sparke, Leroy Anderson and John Barry, was organised by Surrey Arts, which is part of Surrey County Council.
