Schoolchildren across Lancashire have witnessed a wonder of the universe, thanks to a boy who always wanted to help others.
George Higginson, from Overton, was 10 years old when he died in a road accident. The youngster had previously told his parents he wanted to save lives by donating his organs. Five people lived because of him.
He also wanted to bring science to as many people as possible. Today, his parents donated thousands of filtered glasses to schools, so that pupils could safely watch the event.
The youngster's parents are also raising money to build an observatory, in his name, in a Lancaster park. Supporters say it is among the best places to see the stars through darkened skies.

Photographer Stephen Cheatley of Blackpool said: ''We had an amazing aurora display in the UK last night. I had to get away from the bright lights of Blackpool though to get a good chance of seeing them, so I went to Oakenclough near Scorton, in the Forest of Bowland Lancashire.
''I did not see anything at all straight away, but soon the whole northern sky lit up. I thought it would be a good idea to take a selfie with a stunning aurora as a backdrop!''
