This rugged off-road vehicle can carry a lot of equipment to locations may miles from the nearest road.

The show, which was filmed in January, also follows the team as they carry out a ‘fake’ rescue to show off some of their emergency skills.

Presenter Grace drove the mine ambulance and explained its purposes in helping rescue people trapped in the mines.

Grace also took part in a training exercise to help rescue a dummy stuck inside a mine to help bring it back to safety.

Chris Jones, team leader of Cumbria Ore Mines Rescue Unit, said the show is a great way to teach younger audiences about the work they carry out.

He said: “The presenter, Grace, drives weird and wonderful machines and combines it with science.

“The show is aimed at younger kids and teaching them about machinery and science.

“It’s a great way to teach younger audiences and safety and the work we carry out.

“It gives children the chance to see the equipment we use.”

The episode is available to watch on BBC iPlayer.
