Poster shows deadly risk of hoax calls

A SCHOOLBOY has won a poster competition aimed at reducing hoax calls to Lothian and Borders Fire and Rescue Service.

Anthony Williams, a primary six pupil at Loretto RC school, designed a poster showing the potentially terrifying consequences of a hoax call.

His drawing shows a family trapped at their window by fire and warns "it could be you".

Fire crews are actively involved in education work with youngsters throughout the year to explain the danger of hoax calls, and the poster will feature in the campaign.
