New beat for police officers

Have your say

TWO police officers are swapping their beat for a trek up one of the highest mountains in the world - to raise money for charity.

PC Claire Whitbread and PC Emma Marshall will be part of a team attempting to climb Mount Kilimanjaro in aid of Help for Heroes and Macmillan Cancer Support.

The group will fly out to Tanzania in the New Year ready for the start of the trek on January 13.

They will attempt to climb more than 19,000ft to the summit.
