A group of Glasgow students received a prestigious environmental award.

Pupils from Shawlands Academy were crowned Young Reporters for the Environment.

They won the environmental journalism programme, by environmental charity Keep Scotland Beautiful, with a written article about litter in the River Clyde.

The Shawlands Sea Saviours, made up of Matthew, Iman, Bayley, Katie and Laaibah, became champions of the 15 to 18-years-old category with Tackling Litter in the River Clyde.

They said: "We really enjoyed working together as a team. We also enjoyed researching the River Clyde.

"It was fun to create our own solutions and solve plastic problems in our own city."

Marieanne McGlone, principal teacher STE(A)M at Shawlands Academy, said: "It was a great opportunity to watch pupils working together by assigning roles to research, develop and create sustainable solutions to a bigger issue that affects Glasgow - plastic in our own Glasgow Clyde.

"It was great to see pupils flourish in confidence , skills and knowledge using STEM and sustainability to address the issue."
