Giant puffin Tommy Noddy flew into two Amble schools to honour children who won the puffin painting competition.

Various works of art were displayed by numerous businesses in the town during the Amble Puffin Festival and the traders picked the best pieces.

The winners from Amble Links First School were Scarlett (Reception); Daisy (Year 1); Millie (Year 2); Harley (Year 3); and Lola (Year 4).

The winners from Amble First School (Edwin Street) were Emilia (Nursery); Jude (Reception); Ebony R (Year 1); Lexi C (Year 2); William O (Year 3); Pravhdeep (Year 4).

The children and the businesses have been thanked for supporting the event.
