Students got a welcome surprise when they enjoyed a VIP trip to Peterborough United football ground and met British film star Warwick Davis.

The actor and producer posed for photographs and chatted with the students from FACET college in March.

FACET manager Kris Harrold said: “He was also enjoying a VIP day out, students were overwhelmed to get to meet him.

“He was brilliant and was happy to spend time with us posing for plenty of photos. It put the icing on the cake of what was already a great day out for them.”

It is the second time FACET has taken students to the POSH ground where they enjoy VIP treatment of a dinner, followed by a stadium tour and then watch a game.
