School uniforms are out and all manner of zany outfits are in as the borough’s youngsters (and a few adults) come together to celebrate World Book Day.

Pupils and teachers rocked up to school today dressed as characters from the Cat in the Hat to Greg from Diary of a Wimpy Kid to mark the 20th year of the event, which aims to get more children excited about reading.
