TWO German police officers hit the streets of South Tyneside to see life on the beat in England.

Sina Potter and Svenja Beckert travelled from South Tyneside’s twin town of Wuppertal, in Germany, to spend four weeks with officers from South Tyneside area command.

Throughout their stay the pair were given an insight into the workings of Northumbria Police with visits to the force’s marine unit and dog section.
