Local MP Steve Barclay has helped children at a Fenland school mark the Queen's Platinum Jubilee.

The North East Cambridgeshire MP joined pupils from Wisbech St Mary's School Environment Savers Club to help plant trees donated by The Woodland Trust as part of the Green Canopy Project.

Mr Barclay said: "It was great to join the pupils. A great idea as part of this initiative is that each tree has a tag with a number on it, so the 208 pupils feel they have ‘their’ own tree, which in the years to come will help them remember this scheme and the specific tree they feel is their tree.
