A CLASS at a Wymondham school which is getting tough on litter was celebrated at an exclusive London ceremony for the UK's greenest teens.

Wymondham High School, above, beat hundreds of schools to the shortlist of npower's Climate Cops Green SOS programme and attended a ceremony at the Science Museum, London.

The project impressed the panel of judges, including award ceremony presenter Fearne Cotton, Piers Morgan and eco-activist Eugenie Harvey, for the way the youngsters went from litter-full to litter-free in just 14 days.

Piers Morgan, head judge and champion of npower's Climate Cops campaign, congratulated the students saying: "Well done Wymondham for getting so many students involved in picking up the litter and making such a difference to your school. Litter is a big problem in the UK and it is really important to build awareness like you have done."

Fearne Cotton, who met the children, all aged 11-13,, added: "These projects are proof that if we all pull together we can make a difference to the environment around us. It's the little things that count and I urge us all to think green. We're hoping that all the schools' success will inspire plenty more school years TO get involved with Green SOS 2009."
