Joshua Kingston was one of the winners in Akeley Wood School's extreme reading competition

Pupils and staff were challenged to submit photographs of themselves reading books in unusual locations and more than 150 entries were received.

The competition was designed to coincide with the school’s World Book Day celebrations as well as raising the profile of reading around the school.

All the winners received book tokens.
