A SIMULATED disaster saw fireman and police cordon off the loading bay in Midsummer Place on Tuesday night.

The planned drill had fire fighters carry out a full-scale search of the area, discovering bodies and bumps along the way.

Teams of firefighters from across the city donned full breathing aparatus and vision-obscuring masks to fight the ‘blaze’ while police cordoned off the area to members of the public, who were none the wiser to the operation.
