A personal safety product, created by a group of students at Colchester County High School, has been praised by Essex police and crime commissioner Nick Alston.

Boxford resident and pupil Ellis Fenwick said the group came up with the idea for StreetSmart, which includes a personal alarm and torch, after a spate of attacks last year.

So far, they have sold around 170 packs as part of the school’s young enterprise scheme.
