A creative youngster has become the only Scottish winner in a competition by The British Board of Film Classification (BBFC).

Nine-year-old Neve Irvine, who is autistic, put together an illustration for a poster which will be used in schools across the UK to help remind parents, teachers and children what the five age ratings U, PG, 12A, 15 and 18 mean.

Neve, from Kirkintilloch, was one of the winners selected from over 130 individual entries by a panel of judges including BBFC president, Patrick Swaffer and Lucinda Hasell, director of policy and communications at Childnet International.

Neve is a pupil at Castlehill Primary in Bearsden. Prizes for the winners include a training session with a BBFC film examiner at their school for them and their class and a bag full of BBFC goodies.

Neven’s mum Lesley said: “Neve is a very talented drawer.”
