A six-year-old has completed the Lancashire Reading Trail, reading 50 books to earn the initiative's Gold Award.

As part of the reading trail, which is Lancashire Libraries initiative to get children reading and promote literacy, Ellissa Pickles read a half-century of books at Barnoldswick Library in just six months, devouring fairy stories and the popular Horrid Henry series with glee.
