Pupils from 16 schools in and around Wisbech took part in the Safety Zone which ran from June 24 to 28, and teaches children how to stay safe at home and in the community.

This year's lessons included what to do if there is a fire in your home, the best ways to help someone struggling in water, staying safe in cars, coping with bullying and how to identify and report anti-social behaviour.

PCSO Dave Russ, who delivered a session on anti-social behaviour, said: "The Safety Zone events continue to be huge success.

"The workshops offer valuable life skills to our young people in a fun and interactive way, helping them to protect themselves and their families too."

The Safety Zone is a Fenland Community Safety Partnership project which has been running for more than 10 years. It is organised by Fenland District Council and Cambridgeshire County Council with help from Cambridgeshire Constabulary, Cambridgeshire Fire and Rescue Service and Wood Green Animal Shelter.
