Military equipment that saved thousands of lives in Iraq and Afghanistan has been helping North Yorkshire schoolchildren with their lessons.

Pupils from Risedale Sports and Community College were shown how to use the Vallon metal detector by Sergeant Major Mark Hill, 4th Infantry Brigade's Youth Engagement Officer.

They learnt how to sweep for objects in a large field in Catterick Garrison turning up a variety of metal bits and pieces.

The Vallon detectors were used on operations to search for explosive devices.
