Exercise Triton II is the biggest live exercise ever held in the region, and will test how agencies react to a major incident

Hundreds of people are taking part in a huge training exercise today to test the emergency response in the event of a major 'disaster' in Greater Manchester.

Exercise Triton II is the biggest live exercise ever held in the region, and will include military helicopters in the air.

The exact details for the ‘disaster’ exercise have not been disclosed, with operation bosses keen bodies deal with the ‘incident’ in the moment.

But emergency services say it will include a mock live response search and rescue operation in Oldham and Rochdale - and are warning people not to be alarmed.

They are not even saying why they are doing this. I'd be demanding some answers if I were the leadership over there. They won't say where until the actual day of the exercises.
