DETECTIVE Chris Godby who moved to America at the age of 21 was given a behind the scenes tour to see what life is like for officers at Cheshire Constabulary.

The former St Gregory's High School pupil was visiting his family in Warrington but still found the time to visit Warrington Police Station on Arpley Street.

Warrington Guardian:

Chris, who works for the Grand Prairie Police Department in Texas, said: "It was interesting to see the differences in England to America.

"It was humbling as you can take these things for granted.

"I carry a gun but it's not the same in England."

The touching moment Chris surprised his family was also caught on camera.
