Award for North Walsham student
A student who was the driving force behind a North Norfolk school film project has won a county-wide youth award,
Matthew Neave, 17, scooped the culture award at the third annual running of the Bernard Matthews Youth Awards.
Inspirational young people were honoured for their achievements, courage and success at ceremony presented by Blue Peter's Helen Skelton.
Matthew was the leading light behind a North Walsham High School's film project which involved students from England, Germany and Romania working together.
