Favourite characters arrive for World Book Day

Star-spotters would have been bemused on Friday when the Mad Hatter rubbed shoulders with a golden winning ticket from Charlie and the Chocolate Factory at Hillcroft Primary School.

There were characters from a vast array of books at school, despite the snowy weather, to celebrate World Book Day in style.

Pupils and staff all joined the fun and it's not every day you see Bagpuss arrive at the school gates with Alice - who made it all the way from Wonderland for the day.

There was even a parade of costumes when everyone had the chance to model their creations.
