A group of schoolgirls from Newcastle have got through to the finals of a national competition after setting up their own business.

The sixthformers at Westfield school in Gosforth started UJUK - which makes products with the union flag on - for a young enterprise project.

But their business has been so successful it's already made thousands of pounds in just a few months.

They won the North East young enterprise finals and will now travel to London this weekend for the nationals.
