Morse to the rescue

22nd February 2008 at 00:00
Pupils from Lochend Community High in Glasgow have spent the past week improving their creative writing skills in the former home of poet Ted Hughes in Hebden Bridge, West Yorkshire.

The trip was made possible by the John Thaw Foundation, set up in memory of the actor, best known for his portrayal of Inspector Morse. It awarded the school more than pound;8,000, judging its submission better than the other UK applicants'. The prize aims to help under-privileged young people to gain access to the arts.

Honing the 16 S3 pupils' skills have been writers Celia Rees and Jonathan Falla, along with Irish poet Leanne O'Sullivan.
