Cadets in a spin

POLICE youth cadets are in a spin after a trip to the force’s helicopter unit.

The teenage volunteers visited the North East Air Support Unit as part of their year-long training programme.

The young recruits, who have completed the classroom-based element of their training, wore their specially-designed uniforms.

Cadets lead tutor Sergeant Alan Parks, said: “They had a fantastic night and I think it will go down as one of the highlights of their year. It was great for them to be out of the classroom environment and being among police officers wearing their uniforms.”
