An 11-year-old has built a bird box in the memory of a police officer who died from cancer.
Ellie spent this Christmas designing and painting the bird box for PC Scott Durber who died in 2018.
The schoolgirl from Sandwell has been volunteering with the Sandwell Partnerships team since last year.
She helped to host a cancer club in the area, supporting those affected by the illness and raising money for those in need.
Ellie became aware of PC Durber's death after seeing fundraising posters for a bike ride that officers took part in to honour his work.
She then set about thinking what she could do to keep his memory alive.
The youngster met with West Midlands Police Superintendent Martin Hurcomb last week to hand over the bird box.
The bird feeding box was installed above a memorial bench at the back of West Bromwich police station.
Everyone from the force thank Ellie for her efforts in 'doing something so kind and thoughtful'.
“It was a real privilege to meet Ellie and her mother and to receive the bird box in memory of Scott.
