BUDDING young journalists at a Teesside school scooped a top award in an international competition.

Yarm Primary School came top in the Key Stage Two section of The Times Educational Supplement (TES) competition, with their Daily Squint publication.

Teacher Sarah Durham said: "The children have to apply to work on the newspaper.

"We get a lot of applications from Years 5 and 6, and we get that down to 22 who really pulled together as a team."

More than 700 schools from 16 different countries entered the competition.

The students received prizes of digital cameras and computers from BBC Newsround presenter Lizo Mzimba.

It was the second time The Daily Squint had landed the TES title, previously clinching the award in 2003.

David Budge, deputy editor of TES, said: "They seem to have an innate understanding of how a newspaper article should be constructed."
