Fantastic Mr Fox, Charlie and the Chocolate Factory, The BFG and Danny, the Champion of the World were among the books children chose characters from for Roald Dahl Day.

Tuesday marked 100 years since the birth of the much-loved author and, to celebrate, schools across the region invited pupils to dress up as their favourite character from his books.
