Young Mansfield police fan meets his heroes – real-life officers
Police officers made a young boy’s day – when they invited him into their patrol car
Five-year-old Forest Town Primary School pupil Leon Wood – who wants to be a police officer when he grows up – asked his dad Liam if he could meet a real officer.
Mr Wood went and asked at Mansfield police station and PCs Kevin Marshall and Louise Martin were happy to oblige.
Mr Wood said: “Leon loves the police and likes to watch TV programmes about them.
“I thought I’d pop in and see if anyone was available to meet him.
“I was delighted when they agreed. They were great with Leon and made his day.”
Leon sat in the front of a patrol car, tried on a helmet and even got to turn the blue lights on.
PC Marshall, of the Mansfield neighbourhood team, said: “It was great to meet Leon and I’m sure, in 13 years or so, he’ll make a fine police officer.”
