BRIERLEY Hill youngsters recently joined forces with the police for a litter patrol.
Pupils from Withymoor Primary School, picked up bin bags and waged war on litter louts on Monday November 25.
With help from a team of local PCSOs, the pupils, aged between six and 11, tackled rubbish strewn along Gayfield Avenue and Turners Lane, as part of their mission to improve their links with the community.
Sainsbury's Amblecote, which supports the school with its community cohesion, provided drinks and snacks for the children during the litter pick.
Deputy headteacher, Rebecca Tong, said: "The children were extremely excited to be doing the litter pick as it was something they thought would be valuable to do.
"They took their responsibility very seriously and represented our school well."
