School children from Sidmouth, Seaton, Otterton, Branscombe and Sidbury primary schools all took part in the Rotary Club of Sidmouth's gardening competition.

The judges faced a tough challenge to determine the winners for all of the categories after visiting the school's gardens.

Organisers Sandy Macfadyen and Nicole Knight said they were impressed by the children's efforts.

A club spokesman said: "Sidmouth, Seaton, Otterton, Branscombe and Sidbury primary schools all took part and prizes were awarded for such things as the largest beetroot, fattest carrot and the most environmentally sustainable garden.
