ABBEY Wood schoolchildren teamed up with police to record the Met's first Christmas crime prevention jingle.

Pupils from Saint Paul’s Academy choir in Abbey Wood performed the song to the tune of festive favourite Jingle Bells.

The song features some handy tips on keeping yourself and your possessions safe this festive season.

Saint Paul's Academy music teacher Emma Bond said: "The children had 10 minutes to prepare for the song as we were asked to record it on the night we were performing at the carol service for police in Greenwich.

"We were, of course, thrilled to help and did our very best. The children had a great time singing the crime-prevention version and we hope that people will enjoy it.”

Greenwich Borough Commander Richard Wood said: “The song is a bit of fun at this time of year, but hopefully people will enjoy listening to it and also take away some important crime prevention tips as well.

"At this time of year, thieves are on the lookout for easy picking, so it’s important people do what they can to protect their personal property.

I’d also like to say a big thank you to the students and teachers involved at Saint Paul’s Academy in Greenwich for their help in recording this special version of the song!”
