One lucky pupil from a Liverpool school has been picked out of more than 2,000 children as the winner of a national summer reading challenge.

The National Literacy Trust teamed up with publisher Orchard Books to give away books to children across the country who entered the challenge: reading for more than 11 hours, at home and at school.

The students were then entered into a prize draw and the winner was Connor Lamont, a Year 3 pupil from St Nicholas Catholic Primary School.

He won prizes, including book vouchers, an eReader and a Beast Quest goody bag.

Connor said: “I felt surprised because I have always enjoyed reading but I did not think that I would win the competition.

“I am thrilled with my prize and have already read up to page 44 of my new book.”
