There was a separate thread on earlier about emergency vehicles at the old (road) tunnel - Dock Branch. Corporation Road as rude says. Yup, a little confusing, especially with the Tranmere Tunnel sketch in full flight as well!

It was a combined rescue services exercise. They had simulated an RTA in the tunnel. Rescue services involved Merseyside, Lancashire, Cheshire and North Wales. This included a search dog team from Merseyside fire and rescue.
I will try and post some photos taken earlier today.
