Willow Class at Offwell Primary School recently enjoyed a visit from policeman PC Phil Hodder.

Pupils learned about the equipment Mr Hodder needs when he is on duty and were given the opportunity to use some of his devices, with the handcuffs and car siren being particularly popular items.

Mr Hodder also showed them how he would detain a suspect, by pretending to arrest their teacher, Mr Dunning.

Fortunately, Mr Dunning was swiftly released.
