A SHORT film made by a 15-year-old Longsands pupil has been placed on YouTube.
The film by Amelia Taverner, from the St Neots School is to be used to put out the message of the damage done by noise pollution and how the problem of excessive noise can be solved.
Amelia is the winner of a film competition run by Huntingdonshire District Council, which invited secondary school children to submit a film of less than 40 seconds to mark Noise Action Week last week.
Amelia's winning film, Three Wise Neighbours is a silent film with statistics about the damage done by excessive noise in which school pupils find a solution by reporting the problem to Huntingdonshire District Council.
