Longsands Academy pupils designed a set of three murals at St Neots Railway Station.

On Wednesday (June 11), their work was unveiled after about two months of work finalising the pieces.

It is part of a scheme with OnTheLevel Productions to install graffiti art at stations along the line to London.

The 15 pupils from Year 8 and 9 were chosen to take part by recommendation from their art teachers. The designs show the youngsters’ vision of St Neots – from the river to the skate park.

Georgina Ward, second in department for visual arts at Longsands Academy, said: “When they saw their work at the station they were really excited and said it was very cool.”
