From superheroes inspired by Boudica, to the need to look after our planet, hundreds of youngsters have answered our call to design a Norfolk superhero.

Last month we challenged primary school pupils from across the county to get creative and come up with a Norfolk superhero, and they did not disappoint.

More than 260 entered the competition, sending in bright and colourful entries inspired by everything from Norfolk's historical figures to well-known landmarks such as the Norfolk Broads and even more influenced by environmental issues.

Now, after whittling down the entries to a shortlist of 60, here is a selection of some of the best.

The winning entry and recipient of £500 worth of Richardson's Holiday vouchers 
as well as a visit to their school from the 89 Batmobile courtesy of A-Plan Insurance, which is sponsoring Norfolk Day, will be announced in the coming days.
