When asked about the prize, a clearly delighted Andrew said: "I won £4000 which I can use to help my projects, purchase robotics stuff and 'Raspberry Pi' computers, for example, to continue to help me in the voluntary work I'm now involved in with schools. I also get an Apple Ipad Air."

We had a 'Forensics Day' which was brilliant - I don't see how events like that can happen now!"
