A HELICOPTER-mad toddler from St Ives spent a fascinating afternoon exploring Cambridgeshire Constabulary's new chopper.
Two-year-old Lewis Howard's family contacted the force's air operations unit after Lewis began running out of the house and waving at the helicopter whenever it flew overhead.
Lewis' Mum Kathryn said: "Lewis and his sister Charlotte love to go out into the garden and wave at the helicopter every time it flies overhead and I am grateful for the time the officers in the air operations unit have given to allow us to come and have a look at the new helicopter.
"I believe that policing is becoming an increasingly thankless job and appreciate the work that they do in keeping the streets of Cambridgeshire safe."
Lewis joined other local youngsters to look around the helicopter and Cambridgeshire Constabulary Air Observer Rob Davies said: "We are always delighted to show people with an interest in the new helicopter around, especially young children who may often see the aircraft flying over their home or school.
"This gives them the opportunity to see the helicopter up close and find out how it helps the police officers on the ground."
