Longbenton Air Cadets help clear the pond in New Hartley.

Cadets swapped their flying boots for waders as they took part in an assault to help local wildlife.

The youngsters from Longbenton Air Cadets cleaned up a pond in New Hartley which is a protected site and known as a breeding ground for newts.

The pond was in need of some long overdue conservation work with the 13 to 19-year-olds getting stuck in to clear the pond.

Northumberland Are Countryside manager Frances Povey said: “The air cadets have helped with lots of different conservation projects over the years and done a great job.

“The job they’ve done at the pond is amazing and I am very grateful to them for giving their time to help.”
