Sir John Thursby students run Burnley hotel for day

A group of school children from Lancashire have taken over the running of a hotel for a day.

About 20 students from Sir John Thursby Community College in Burnley carried out duties at the Holiday Inn Express, including maintenance, housekeeping and reception.

It is hoped hands-on work in the hospitality industry will help improve their employment chances.

The students, aged 11-16, also served lunch to invited guests.
