The bedtime story is a feature of countless childhoods and now a West Norfolk village school has taken up the idea in a bid to encourage reading development.

Pupils, many in pyjamas and carrying their favourite teddies, went back to the Watlington Community Primary School long after their normal hometime to take part in a bedtime story cafe initiative, designed to promote reading together.
