An 11-year-old pupil at Irvine's Elderbank Primary has been named the Scottish winner of a competition to design a road safety banner.

Larin Al-Ahmed took the honours in this year's Recognition Express and BRAKE competition.

For the 15th year running, Ayr-based school uniform specialist Recognition Express teamed up with road safety charity BRAKE to invite primary school children to submit banner designs.

The theme for 2023 was:  "Let’s talk about SPEED - five people die on roads every day, why do will still think it is OK to speed?"

Larin received a full size banner of her design to display outside Elderbank Primary School to help keep children safe during the long winter nights.

She also received a personalized star trophy to mark her achievement.

Lorraine McQuaker, director of Recognition Express, which is based in Ayr's Crown Street, said: “We were very impressed by Larin’s design.

"Each year, we receive hundreds of entries and hers really stood out.

"The speed limit around schools is set at 20 miles an hour but children all too often see vehicles whizzing by far too fast. Keeping to the limit and slowing down saves lives.

"We’re proud to be able to do our bit to help convey this important message and at the same time continue our support for this very important charity.”
