A toddler battling cancer received a special treat from Norfolk Police after meeting officers and having a tour of a police car.
Harry Deeba, two, from Taverham, was diagnosed with high-risk neuroblastoma, a cancer of the nervous system.
He has been battling the disease for a year but if he relapses there is a one in 10 chance of survival.
Parents, Carly Howes and Ali Deeba, are trying to raise £239,000 to send Harry to New York to take part in a vaccine trial that could stop the cancer from returning.
Harry is motor mad with his love of aeroplanes, fire engines and police cars. Miss Howes says that he calls them 'nee-naws'.
