RUNCORN pupil four-year-old Luke Jones became Captain Barnacles of the Octonauts to celebrate World Book Day.

His handmade outfit won the best costume prize at Victoria Road Primary School.

Children dressed up as all sorts of characters to celebrate their favourite books.

His proud mum, Kelly, of Poplar Close, said: “My very talented mum, Cath Conneely, made the costume as we couldn’t find one we liked."
