YOUNGSTERS from a Scarborough school became newshounds for the day after a visit from a journalist.

Evening News education reporter Steven Hugill dropped in to see Year Four pupils at Seamer and Irton Primary School to offer tips on how to find and write stories.

Mr Hugill helped the children put together their own articles from a new book by local author and former teacher Dorothy Morrison about a Viking find in the village.

After discussing the best way to write the story, the youngsters were allowed to produce their own version of events before enjoying a lesson in shorthand.

Teacher Anne Norland said the pupils had thoroughly enjoyed the visit and added it had given them a real insight into the world of journalism.
