CHILDREN have been tackling issues affecting their town at a junior community police meeting.

More than 30 youngsters, aged between six and nine-years-old, gave their views on anti-social behaviour, littering, off-road biking and speeding.

PCSOs Abby Freeman, Callum Proudlock, and Iain Osborne held two one hour youth Police and Communities Together (Pact) meetings at the Auckland Youth and Community Centre, in Bishop Auckland, on Tuesday, April 15 and Wednesday, April 16.

The youngsters enjoyed a game of football before talking about what they knew about the issues.

PCSO Freeman said: “They responded really well and learnt off each other. They had done their own research beforehand.”

She said she hoped the event might take place again in the summer holidays.
