Cambridgeshire police enter box office battle with epic charity video

THE stage is set for this year’s summer blockbuster to emerge - and after Cambridgeshire police’s latest offering, it seems they have pretty much got it in the bag.

In an effort to raise money for Sport Relief and promote the force’s new non-emergency number, 101, more than 100 officers (101, to be precise) ran, skipped, hopped and bounced a mile each.

The film’s budget was probably pretty slim but that has not had an effect on the “epic” factor. Tense music and some questionable “running” meet the gritty backdrop of some car park somewhere to make this film a real frontrunner in the summer box office battle.

The plot needs a bit of work.

But it helped the force raised more than �1,400 for Sport Relief.

Chief Constable Simon Parr said: “This event was a great opportunity for everyone to get together to raise money for a good cause, while raising the profile of the new 101 non-emergency number.

“From April 1, the old 0345 number will be switched off and we can only be contacted on 101 for all non-emergency calls.
