LITTLE stars helped inject some festive cheer into Wearside at Northumbria Police’s annual carol service.

On Wednesday, hundreds of people flocked to Sunderland Minster, which played host to the force’s annual Christmas carol concert for the first time.

Visitors were helped to get into the festive spirit by budding young singers from Benedict Biscop Primary School, who donned their Father Christmas hats to lead the carols for the evening.

Easington Colliery Band was also on hand to provide the music for the night.

Superintendent Jim Napier, who attended the carol service, hailed the evening a hit.

He said: “The service was a wonderful evening and it was great that so many people came along to enjoy it.

“The choir were fantastic and most definitely the stars of the night.

“It was lovely that it was held in Sunderland and could be enjoyed by our local community.”
