PUPILS at a Hereford school received a visit from a children's author.

Anne Cottringer, who has written books including 'Eliot Jones Midnight Superhero', chatted to pupils at Lord Scudamore School.

The Canadian-born writer worked with Year One children before reading from Midnight Superhero. The children then designed a new superhero friend for Eliot and asked Anne about being an author. They also had the opportunity to buy signed books.

English Manager, Sarah Watkins, said: "It's great for the children to meet an author like Anne who has written many children's books. I loved hearing the pupils say that they now want to be writers."
