Aquatic youngsters were put to the test as they went up against each other in a series of challenges during a ‘swimming gala’ at Hadrian Leisure Centre in Wallsend.

More than 140 pupils from 12 North Tyneside schools took part in a series of pool-based races and events, earning points for their school.

Children from Hadrian Park Primary School came out on top, with Western Community and Wallsend Jubilee primary schools in second and third, respectively.

Everyone who took part in the event was also rewarded with a medal to commemorate the day.
