The long arm of the law turned its hand to football 10 years ago as Boston’s Neighbourhood Policing Team (NPT) took on youngsters from Boston Grammar School in a game of six-a-side.

Police team captain Pcso James Birch was joined by other members of the NPT, Boston Borough Council’s community safety manager Peter Hunn and off-duty police officers based in the town.
