All aboard for a journey into your imagination.

Staff and pupils at Dereham Church of England Infant and Nursery School have welcomed a new addition to their playground - a double decker bus.

The vehicle is not just going to be an ornament, it will be transformed into the new school library.

Site manager Mike Lynn said: 'Schools everywhere struggle for space and many like ours have simply come to a point where there is no scope to extend anywhere else without encroaching on the children's outside space and that's something we do not wish to do.

'My idea was to acquire a double decker bus and transform it into the school's new library which the head teacher loved and gave me the green light to run with it.

The bus has been donated to the school by Dereham-based Konectbus.
