STOP the press! A school newspaper has beaten off stiff competition to win a local award run by the Birmingham Mail.

The stories and features written by pupils at St Thomas More Catholic Primary - which is based in Sheldon - really impressed judges.

The students who fill the paper were recently invited to a lunch at Millennium Point and received a trophy from Mail editor Steve Dyson.

As part of the prize, the team also received £1,000 to spend on the project.

Since it was set up three years ago, the Tommy More News has published a number of celebrity interviews - including a chat with Blues captain Lee Carsley and the Harlem Globetrotters basketball team.

Sister Susan Collins, headteacher, said: “The newspaper award is a great achievement and we are delighted that the efforts of our children and staff, have been recognised in this way.”
