POLICE have been teaching children at Ford End Church of England Primary School how to keep safe during a safety and crime prevention week.

Inspector Cheryl Callow, and PCs Katie Body and Lucy Smith went into the school every day and the week was brought to a close when Insp Callow and her team electronically tagged the children's bikes.
