A HUDDERSFIELD company was called in to help on a shocking drama on TV this weekend.
Dirty War will show the aftermath of terrorists setting off so-called dirty bombs in London to spread radioactivity.
Equipment from Longwood-based decontamination and specialist rescue equipment company The Aire Group will be seen during the 90-minute drama on BBC1 tomorrow from 9pm.
The drama is designed to ask the question: Just how prepared is the UK if such a nightmare scenario ever happens?
The Aire Group won the Queen's Award for Enterprise in 2001 for its innovative Aireshower mobile decontamination unit.
This unit - linked to two Aireshelta inflatable buildings, to form a mass decontamination set-up - will be seen during the drama.
Aire Group staff Kevin Bradley and Mark Littlewood travelled to London to set the system up.
Mr Bradley said: "This is the most realistic programme that has ever been done about the aftermath of a dirty bomb."
Mr Littlewood said: "All the emergency services were involved in the filming, along with the Army.
"We were filmed at three sites - Brick Lane, St Catherine's Dock and outside the Reuters news agency building.
"The programme will certainly make people stop and think."
Aire Group decontamination equipment is used all over the world, from the UK to Japan and Hong Kong.
