School children are helping to spread the word about keeping County Durham's streets litter-free.
Pupils from three primary schools in Crook have designed posters encouraging people to dispose of their litter responsibly.
The youngsters were challenged to come up with the designs as part of a project by the 3 Towns Partnership and Durham County Council's civic pride team to raise awareness among young people of environmental issues.
One winner from each school was chosen to have their design made into a poster to be displayed by local businesses.
The initiative also saw representatives from the AAP and civic pride team leading assemblies at each of the participating schools.
Dropping litter is an offence for which people can be issued with an £80 fixed penalty notice (FPN).
If they fail to pay the FPN they can betaken to court and fined up to £2,500.
