To help the web chat go smoothly, the Community Ambassadors were asked to be involved to help guide the session and advise others in their peer group.  The teacher, Mr Ali, said the Community Ambassadors gave a valuable input to the session and it was good to have them in the classroom.

For a short time you can read some of the chat that took place on line at www.westmercia.police.uk/webchat/
