TWO fresh-faced computer whizzes got to tour Wiltshire Police's headquarters after winning a force coding competition.

Myles Butterworth, 10 from Bradford-on-Avon and 11-year-old Toby Johnson, from Salisbury, developed games based on the theme of staying safe online.

Wiltshire Police's cyber crime unit had asked youngsters across the county to develop an online game based on the theme of staying safe online and present their game in a two minute YouTube video.

Myles, who hopes to become a software developer, said in his video; “My game is a platform game and in it, you control a boy called Alex. You must help him navigate an online world in his quest to find the safety online tips. To make my game, I hand wrote 383 lines of code in a text language called Python.”

Myles is hoping to go into software development when he finishes school.

Det Insp Gemma Vinton said; “We wanted to find a fun and novel way of making young people think about how they can stay safe online and our entrants didn’t disappoint. We were all blown away by the quality of the entries.

“With the cyber world growing these young people are our future.”
