A drawing by a 12-year-old boy is set to be turned into a new travelcard wallet for London.

Oliver Chalcroft, from Harpenden, entered a competition run by the Institute of Imagination to re-design the holder.

His image, based on the theme "dance through your imagination", was chosen by a judging panel chaired by ballet star Darcey Bussell.

Ten thousand wallets will be handed out during the Big Dance 2016 festival.
