The mayor and a number of companies, such as Carnival UK and Hampshire and Isle of Wight Air Ambulance, were given training on how to manage a terrorist attack situation and how to help injured people before the emergency services arrive.

Cllr Tennent said: '˜You really hope that you won't have to be in a situation where you need it but, if you do, the experience is invaluable.' 

Peter Hart, EchoFour training manager, said: '˜CitizenAID develops skills that you will hopefully never need but the programme allows you to be prepared and not scared so you could help save a life.'
