Scores of Harry Potters, Willy Wonkas and Gruffalos will walk through the doors of schools today to mark World Book Day.

Our photographers will be visiting schools around the borough to capture the smiles of youngsters enjoying the literary celebration.

These will be featured in a special supplement in next week’s paper, out on Friday March 11.

Don’t forget to also tweet your pictures to @romfordrecorder for inclusion in our online gallery.
