Entertainer warns pupils of dangers on the roads
A picture of a nine-year-old child who suffered a serious accident is being shown to schoolchildren to remind them to wear a cycling helmet when they are on their bike.
Children's entertainer Olly Day warned pupils of the dangers they face on the road during a special assembly at North Walsham Infants School.
He used puppets and magic tricks to drive home essential road safety skills, including stop, look and listen, and the importance of being safe and seen.
Mr Day said: 'We call it 'Learning with Laughter' and it is a great way of reminding children about stop, look and listen.
'It's hard-hitting but done in a fun way.

'We have puppet animals included in the show and it is a great thing to do. It is good to catch the children young and explain road safety.'
The show, which is touring schools throughout the area, is funded by Norfolk County Council in its drive to reduce the number of accidents on the region's roads.
