First aiders are geared up for an electrifying event in London’s legendary Battersea Power Station this weekend.

Red Bull X-Fighters World Final Tour will be descending upon the UK’s capital, on Saturday 22nd August, to put on an evening of gravity-defying motorbike stunts.

The performance will be situated in front of the unused coal-fired power station and is set to be one of the largest events ever to be held in the shadows of the towers.

It is expected that 17,000 people will be attending the mind-blowing extravaganza. St John Ambulance in London will be deploying:
