A TV documentary on special constables in Cambridgeshire started on Monday (July 1).

The Specials offers an insight into the work of a special constable and how they contribute to the police force.

James Chatfield, a Thomas Morris estate agent in Ramsey, is one of the stars of the 15-part show, which runs daily at 11am on BBC One.

Assistant Chief Constable Mark Hopkins said: “The series will give a fascinating insight into this less obvious side of policing by following the Specials from their personal and work lives to walking the beat, carrying out house-to-house enquiries, working on crimes and incidents such as road collisions, drugs raids and providing security at major events.”
