A CARE home resident who was injured while serving in the police force has relived his youth thanks to The Museum of Policing in Warrington.

Kevin Milnes, 68, was on duty in Widnes chasing a stolen car in 1998 when he was involved in a serious crash.

More than 30 years later, Kevin, who is originally from Oldham, wanted nothing more than to reminisce about his time as a police officer.

He is a resident at Widnes Hall Care Home, which has a wish tree in its reception and the staff try to grant as many as they can.

Angie Taker, activities champion at the care home, said she got in touch with the area's PCSO to help make Kevin's wish come true.

She said: "We were treated like royalty and were shown around the cells and shown old equipment that the police used.

"Kevin had a lovely day with lots of photographs to look back on."

The museum is located in the County Police Office in Arpley Street and contains a collection of items used by forces over the years.

It is a registered charity run on a voluntary basis and is open to tours by appointment only.
