A TEAM of young crimefighters made it through to the regional final of a national enterprise competition.

The nine-strong group of Year 9 pupils from Westleigh High School represented the borough in the Greater Manchester area final of the Lionheart Challenge, funded by Greater Manchester Police and held at the Reebok Stadium. The Westleigh team competed against 13 other schools in their group to design a device or service which would help improve communication between people and the police.
