Youngsters had a taste at being the long arm of the law on Saturday at a police open day.

Ilford Police Station in High Road, Ilford, hosted the all-day event to show the community the different work the force does.

The free session was organised with the Ilford Business Improvement District (BID), with a cake sale also raising money for veterans charity Help the Heroes.

The force tweeted about the event from its account @RedbridgeMPS saying: “A fantastic day for us, thank you to all those who attended it was a pleasure having you and we hope you enjoyed the day as much as we did.”

And borough commander Det Ch Supt Sue Williams said: “Thank you to all staff, helpers, volunteers and local community for making this a great event.”

The event also included a flyover by the Met helicopter, police horses and Redbridge MPS mascot Bobby the Bear.
