Pupils at a school in Somerset are benefiting from the results of a million pound building project at their school.

The investment at North Petherton Primary has enabled three new classrooms to be built to accommodate the rise in the number of pupils in the area. And a makeover of the outside space means there's more room for the children to play outside.

Head Teacher Gary Hobbs says the transformation has brought the school together.
