Fishing for ideas.

Schoolchildren were today voting on the best way to revitalise a Tyneside fish quay.

Pupils in North Shields were being shown a short slideshow on the Fish Quay and New Quay areas and being asked questions to gauge their opinions.

Their votes will then be recorded through an electronic voting system and fed back into creating a statement about both quays.

Jill Foster, headteacher at Waterville Primary School, said: "This is a wonderful way of getting children to understand how decisions are taken about their local community."
