She may be only six, but bookworm Ghulam-Fatima Iqbal has read her way through an incredible 50 books.

This achievement has earned her a gold award on the Lancashire Reading Trail at Nelson Library.

Ghulam-Fatima not only read the books, she completed a review for each one. Her prize was a signed copy of Jamie and Angus Together by Anne Fine.

A pupil at St Paul's C of E School on Nelson, Ghulam-Fatima's reading age is two years higher than her age.

When she hasn't got her head in a book, the youngster enjoys spelling and also playing out and her favourite game is hide and seek.
