A primary school in Somerset has completed its own version of the classic Panini World Cup sticker book.

All the 576 players in the official album have been drawn by pupils at the Flax Bourton Primary School.

The "Flaxini" World Cup Album is being auctioned online to raise money for two bowel cancer charities - the Bobby Moore Trust and Above and Beyond.

Josh Brown, a parent at the school, said: "It's a thing of beauty and we're hoping it will find a welcome home."

Created by everyone from the head teacher to reception class pupils, the A3 album is split into team pages with facts about each country such as: "In Switzerland it is illegal to own just one guinea pig".

Kevin Keegan, aged 67, along with Eddie "The Eagle" Edwards, aged 54, are among the contributors as well as Sir Ranulph Fiennes, Bill Turnbull, Kerry Katona and Giles Brandreth.

Mr Brown, said: "It's got all the kids drawings in but it's a little bit of fun and hopefully it will puts smiles on faces."
