A "super team of girls" at a city school have beaten off competition from across the country to win an industry-led award.
The group, named the Stemettes, from Jane Austen College, Norwich, were recognised at the 2019 Industrial Cadets Awards - a national accreditation intended to create oppotunities for youngsters - for their work in designing an eco-hotel.
Their creation, named Hotel Amet - Latin for environment - came after research into reducing energy consumption, development of a prototype and a 40-page report.

The group of girls from Jane Austen College was one of 10 winners selected and recognised for their work.
