UK: Channel 4’s Inside the Bomb Squad to feature Newbury

For the first time in the UK, Channel 4 is allowing inside access into the daily jobs of those who form part of the ‘bomb squad’, working to keep Britain safe.

One episode will be featuring a major landmark very close to home – Newbury Race Course.

Inside the Bomb Squad will feature specialist search teams training at the race course as they prepare to work at major events like the wedding of the Duke and Duchess of Sussex.
