The crime scene wih pupils from Churchill primary school.


THERE were suspicious goings on at Churchill Primary School this week when an unidentified flying object was found on the school field.

Thankfully the prospect of an alien invasion was short-lived, as pupils were given the chance to investigate the crime scene.

Two local police community support officers (PCSOs) joined in to talk to the children and to help them with their investigations.
