Parents will have been packing their children off to school this morning in costume for the traditional World Book Day.

Children were no exception at Ruskington's Winchelsea School as they were among those who donned all manner of outfits of favourite book characters to celebrate the literary awareness day, along with pupils joining in fun activities at primary and secondary schools around Sleaford.

Headteacher Helen Duckett said: "The staff are dressed up too and we are doing activities all day which are book themed.

"We even have book themed school dinners today!"
