Police have transformed a children's ride-on car to create the perfect Christmas present for a young girl with a rare chromosome disorder.
Daisy Berry from Wigan is "absolutely made up" with her gift, which has been transformed from a toy racer into her own police patrol vehicle. It has reflective stickers and blue lights, thanks to officers who added Greater Manchester Police force livery to the car.
Daisy, who has Pallister Killian Syndrome, has had more than 20 operations in her short lifetime due to various medical complications.
The four-year-old, who doesn't talk, loves the sound of sirens on the streets, and always takes a mini police car with her whenever she has a medical appointment.
This year, her parents Steven and Jenny decided to get her an electric toy ride-on car, so she could drive around in a vehicle herself.
They then contacted Greater Manchester Police to see if they could turn it into her own special patrol car.
“She’s absolutely made up with it. She’s a tough little girl and does so well, and I am delighted we were able to give her this gift that she loves. In fact she loves it so much that she even pulled over another little girl in her electric toy car on Christmas morning in the street.”
