The competition winners at Weldon Primary School

These pupils from Weldon Primary School are the second group to win prizes in the Star Wars themed drawing competition launched by PCs Mark Walker and Brad Wilson from Northants Police.

The Corby officers teamed up with Tesco after it donated some life-size Star Wars cut-outs to put them into several school libraries in a bid to add interest and promote reading.

Mick Brown, community champion from Tesco Extra, judged the entries and presented the prizes at a recent school assembly.
