A laboratory technician, care hire company manager and historian are among Cambridgeshire Constabulary's 16 new recruits who graduated at a socially-distanced ceremony.

The officers, who have given up a range of jobs, stood in socially-distanced formation before being inspected by Chief Constable Nick Dean at force HQ in Huntingdon.

Friends and family were unable to attend due to the Covid-19 pandemic but were able to watch events remotely.

Having successfully completed their 16-week training course, the new officers will be posted across the county to tackle crime and protect the public.

Two will be based in Wisbech, one in Huntingdon, seven will operate from Thorpe Wood Police Station in Peterborough and six will cover the south of the county from Parkside.
