Students in a whirl at visit.

STUDENTS got a lift to their spirits when they visited a police helicopter.

The Percy Hedley Secondary School, in Forest Hall, which caters for pupils with cerebral palsy, autism, speech language and communication difficulties, were invited by the North East Air Support Unit to visit their unit at Newcastle International Airport.

The school is part of the Percy Hedley Foundation which helps 1,000 disabled children, adults and their families throughout the North East.

The pupils had asked officers from Killingworth neighbourhood policing team about the NEASU so they were thrilled when the officers managed to arrange a visit.

The children were in awe of the helicopter which is shared between Newcastle International and Durham Tees Valley Airports.

They were given demonstrations of the equipment by officers in charge of the craft.
