On Tuesday, January 18 police were invited to Park Primary School in Wheatley to talk to the children about road safety.

South Yorkshire Police said: “While some officers showed the kids around our vehicles, designed parking tickets and answered some of their weird and wonderful questions on policing, the rest of the team were patrolling the Wheatley area.

“At the end of the school day the children patrolled round the school, issuing the tickets they had designed to drivers.
