A TYNEDALE schoolboy has designed a winning cycling-themed jersey.

Broomhaugh First School Year 4 pupil, Adam Symes, was the winner in the reception to Year 4 category in the Tour of Britain jersey competition where children were invited to come up with their own Northumberland-based designs.

It was part of the county council’s celebrations to mark the arrival of the OVO Energy Tour of Britain cycle race in September.

Adam’s entry featured Hadrian’s Wall under a sky of stars, which he said he thought were the two best things about living in Northumberland. The winning entry from each age category will be turned into a jersey, which will be presented to their school.
