Pupils from a Doncaster primary school will travel to the Houses of Parliament to compete in a national technology competition.

Youngsters from Shaw Wood Primary, in Mere Lane, Armthorpe, have won the regional heat and will now join children from across the UK for the final of the Make IT Happy Competition on Tuesday.

If victorious, they will take home a prize of more than £5,000 for their school.

The school was encouraged to enter the competition by Doncaster Central MP Rosie Winterton, who will greet the pupils when they arrive at Parliament.
