A Leicestershire village has won a £60,000 grant to help install solar panels on its community buildings.

The National Lottery money will be used in North Kilworth to upgrade the village hall, sports club and school.

Village resident Peter Jones said the solar panels will help reduce the village's carbon footprint.

The Village Power Community Interest company said the cash will also be used to plant trees with the assistance of local pupils.
