Teenager's Safety Message

As bonfire weekend gets underway, a teenager has released a dramatic video to emphasise the firework safety message.

 

Helena Wood from Kent needed treatment at the specialist burns unit at the Queen Victoria Hospital in East Grinstead after being involved in an accident when she was seven - she needed skin grafts, some of the burns had gone through to the nervous system

She's made a video with the aim of ensuring the same thing doesn't happen to anyone else
