The pupils from Howard Junior School, in King's Lynn, will have their illustrations displayed in the windows of the Peterborough John Lewis, as part of a national competition asking schoolchildren to draw local people who have a positive impact on their lives.

More than 7,000 entries were submitted to stores across the country, and Howard's winning drawings will now be on display until September 1.

Eight-year-old Akvile Jasinskyte's drawing of a local female police officer was among those handpicked.

She said: 'I would like to be a police officer when I am older. I am inspired by the female officers I see on the street.'
