Parents and children at a school in Cumbria are creating a new flower garden in the design of the famous Olympic rings.

Built on the playing field at Heron Hill Primary School, Kendal, the outline is formed from donated wooden poles.

The rings are 4ft 11in (1.5m) in diameter and will contain more than 300 plants.

The Olympic torch is due to pass through Kendal on 22 June.

Head teacher Peter Hicks said: "We've got lots of Olympic themed events coming up including sports days, visits from athletes and one of the Olympic torch bearers is coming in to talk to the pupils.

"The garden will be at the heart of all our activity."

More than 100 wooden posts were donated to the school by Electricity North West.
