Schoolchildren from Middlesbrough received a special visit from the Police and Crime Commissioner this week, after receiving a national award for their anti-racism work.
Pupils at Whinney Banks Primary School were winners in the All Ages and Abilities Multimedia category in Show Racism the Red Card's School compeition.
Their moving video 'Barriers' higlighted the mental and social walls often put up between people in society.
PCC Barry Coppinger visited the children on Monday 15th May, to present them with Show Racism the Red Card goody bags and offer his praise.
He said: "I would like to congratulate the children and teachers involved in creating such a moving and well put-together video, which explores some strong messages about tolerance and breaking down barriers.
"I've been so impressed with the inspiring messages in the video that I have asked the video to be promoted at community events.
"Special thanks to Show Racism the Red Card for allowing children in our area to showcase their talent and promote the anti-racism message."
