Stay Safe resources for teenagers

MPA is particularly concerned about teenagers who place their lives at risk by trespassing in both active and disused quarries. Over recent years, young people have been killed and seriously injured in such situations. In addition to its Stay Safe materials for younger children, it has now evolved a new set of resources targeted specifically at teenagers.
