The exercise will simulate an attack by a fictitious radical group called Wackos Against Schools and Education who believe everyone should be homeschooled. Under the scenario, a bomb is placed on the bus and is detonated while the bus is traveling on Durham, causing the bus to land on its side and fill with smoke.Article via achanchinou.|

~reads article~ ...oh, my god. That's incredible. The poor kids. I mean, I know they've agreed to take part in it and they know perfectly well what's going on, but it will still be a pretty horrible thing to sit through. ~shakes head~ For god's sake.
The Home Office account of the contents of the questionnaire is pretty accurate. The only question I can think of that they've left off is the one which asks what venues would be suitable ones in which to conduct the registration if/when the full scheme gets going. My experience was worse than I expected, and I said so.
The data your fingerprints etc are compared against are taken from volunteers in countries outside the UK. I think Germany, the US and India were mentioned in the information I was shown.
