Pupils at Southbroom Infants School in Devizes were astonished to turn up at school to find police had cordoned off their classrooms.
They were even more amazed when they were told an alien spacecraft had crashed there and officers needed their help to trace the captain of the extraterrestrial ship.
I suppose one saving grace is that at least, real police were’t involved this time.
PC Adam Hall, manager of the Devizes neighbourhood policing team, said this was an example of the kind of school liaison exercise Wiltshire Police had been carrying out for some years.“It helps to create a positive image of the emergency services with young children and to show them that people in uniform are there to help them and not to be afraid of.”
And preparing us all for the eventual arrival of our alien overlords?
