Norfolk schoolchildren have been planning for environmental disaster as part of an upcoming art performance.
Pupils aged 13 and 14 from Flegg High School in Martham have been researching environmental disaster scenarios and imagining what actions would need to be taken for public safety and public order in Norwich.
Their work is part of a world premiere by theatre group Metis Arts, who will use it to create an interactive exhibit at the Norfolk and Norwich Festival where the audience are invited to become emergency planners.
Third Ring Out: Rehearsing the Future is set in 2033 when environmental disaster threatens the city.

Ruth Bullard, creative partnerships co-ordinator at Flegg High, said: “It has been a fantastic experience for the children to work on something that's going to be real. It's a great learning experience to have their views and opinions considered equally with adults, and we're going to get as many of them as possible to see the finished piece so they can see how their ideas have been incorporated.”
The pupils spent Wednesday in the city centre taking photographs and video footage, and interviewing members of the public and civic services including the fire brigade, police, city council and tourism offices.
