Students highlight UK child poverty

Help

A group of students at a school in West Lothian have received an award for their work highlighting the high rate of poverty among children in the UK.

The Seen and Heard group, from St Kentigern's Academy, made a video in conjunction with Unicef to raise awareness of the four million children in the UK affected by the issue - including one of their own.

The Rotary Young Citizen Awards will be presented on the BBC News Channel at 11.30am on Saturday 14 April.
