Ricky meets police boat hero

A 12-year-old boy is being called a hero by police after he helped them catch a suspected criminal.

Will took two police officers out in his boat, so they could chase a man who went into a lake to escape them.

The suspect had jumped from the first-floor window of a house, hurting both of his legs, before making a break for the water and trying to swim away.

Ricky went to meet Will and find out more about his heroic boat trip.
