CHILDREN with special needs were invited to get as messy as possible during a play session held at Hinchingbrooke Country Park in Huntingdon.

The messy play day, which was held on Thursday, was organised by rangers at the park with the aim of stimulating children's senses.

Youngsters aged nine and above played with bubbles, sand, water, cornflour and paint and were even asked to decorate a cardboard newt with newspaper.

Alison Grey, a ranger at the park, said: "The event is good for children with special needs as it helps stimulate their senses and allows them to have fun getting messy without making a mess at home.

"This is only the second time the event has been held but due to positive feedback we are hoping to hold it again next year."
