SIX students were feared to be seriously injured in a major road traffic smash right outside Chesterfield College.

Fire crews, police and paramedics raced to the scene on Infirmary Road and even the air ambulance was called out to help.

But in fact no one was hurt at all - the incident was faked as part of a new campaign to warn young people of the perils of dangerous driving.

Dying2Drive is the brainchild of the Derbyshire Constabulary, and they called in other emergency services to stage the demonstration.

Students were recruited to play the victims, who were removed from the wreckage of the vehicles and treated by emergency services personnel.

Hundreds of other students were there to witness the event outside the campus and every interactive whiteboard in the college streamed video of the demonstration directly to each classroom.
