YOUNGSTERS touched by the killing of a policeman have compiled their own remembrance book.
The children, aged 11 to 13, were asked in a religious studies lesson to think about news stories that had affected them.
So they came up with the idea of a book to pay tribute to Pc Ian Broadhurst, 34, of Birkenshaw, who was shot dead on Boxing Day in Oakwood, Leeds while investigating a suspicious car.
Pupils from Temple Moor High School in the east of the city were presenting the book - which includes words, extracts from songs and pictures - to Garforth police station today.
The school's head of religious education, Diane Brodowska, said: "This book of remembrance reflects the children's true sentiments and is really quite profound.
"It shows how religious education shouldn't just be seen as an academic subject. It provides an opportunity for them to think about what is happening around the world.
"They have time to think about what's important, not just disregarding the images and words they see on television and in newspapers. The book is also a fundamental way for them to express that they care about others."
Sgt Ann Drury, who was Pc Broadhurst's sergeant, said: "We are all extremely touched to be receiving this book of remembrance.
"It's comforting to know the pupils have been thinking about us in this way and given some genuine time to reflect on what happened to Ian. It will be nice to look through it and see their hard work."
Pc Broadhurst's close friend, Pc Kevin Judd, said: "This shows that children who would normally be out playing and enjoying themselves can show that their thoughts are with Ian and his family at a time like this."
