When it’s Easter it’s tradition to go looking for Easter eggs. A group of children from a little village near London were also doing this. Not knowing that this would become an Easter weekend that they would not soon forget. In a very original and direct manner. Because instead of going on an innocent egg hunt, they’d become national heroes.
Looking for Easter eggs
The children and their families gathered on Good Friday to spend a long weekend together. On that day, they decided to have an Easter egg hunt on a field in Capel, nearby Surrey. But because of a break-in in a building in the neighbourhood, they suddenly ended up in a dramatic helicopter chase.
When there was suddenly a police helicopter in the air and two men running across the field, the families realised they were witnessing an intense police chase.
The children believed they had to help the police, but how? Because the police were flying high in the air and there was no way to communicate with them from the ground. Then the children thought of this genius plan!
The group of children was creative enough and soon figured out what to do to help the police helicopter, which wasn’t sure where to go. They dropped to the ground and lay down in arrow-shaped formation, in order to send the authorities in the right direction.
“The children quickly formed an arrow on the ground in the middle of the ploughed field, to send the helicopter in the direction of the running duo”, said a spokesperson for the police. “The helicopter squad passed this information on to the officers on the ground, and a little while later the duo was arrested!” Two men of 28 and 27 years old were arrested on suspicion of burglary.

“I’m sure that this was the last thing the families were expecting when they set out for an innocent Easter egg hunt on Friday. The initiative they showed was immensely valuable”, said the spokesperson. Watch the video of the heroic deed below:
