Waltham Forest’s Police Cadets were crowned the best in the Met last weekend as they beat teams from across the capital.

The team of teens from the borough travelled Hendon Training School to take part in event designed at testing the skills they have learnt.

Cadets were thrown into a number of scenarios and were tasked with using their training to help victims and each other to safety.

After six tasks, the Waltham Forest team earned 559 points – putting them in first place overall.

Borough Commander Mark Collins said that he was ‘extremely proud’ of the team of cadets aged between 13 and 19.

There remains a long waiting list to join the cadets in the borough.
