Green-minded South Yorkshire pupils have built their own eco-friendly houses.

A total of 288 Year 7 pupils from Netherwood school, near Wombwell, Barnsley, worked in teams to build model houses, including features such as solar panels and rainwater harvesting systems.

Judges gave out Easter eggs for the best designs.

Fiona Ratcliffe, of social housing contractor Keepmoat who helped the pupils, said: “The effort the students put in was incredible.”
