A group of school children from North East Somerset are sending their work to the Queen as a Diamond Jubilee gift.

The Year 4 pupils at Bishop Sutton Primary School wrote a song and produced a photo gallery of Chew Valley Lake.

Teacher Katie Geen said they had been learning about the history of the lake, which the Queen opened in 1956.

The lake, which can hold 20bn litres of water, was built to provide water for Bristol.

"We felt it would be lovely to send [the work] to the Queen as a thank you gift and to commemorate her Jubilee," Ms Geen said.

"Hopefully it will bring back some happy memories of her first few royal duties."
