Northumbria Police is taking on its youngest-ever recruits after launching Northumbria Mini Police.

The scheme will see Year 5 children given the opportunity to work with local police officers and volunteer police cadets to learn more about policing.

At an event in Bedlington, pupils received their uniform on horseback from the Force’s mounted section.
