Describing returning to his old stomping ground as "a pleasure", the MP said: "As a former pupil at Highlands Primary School I was proud to see so many amazing Christmas card designs which demonstrated the talent and creativity of everyone that took part in the competition."

It was a fierce contest to declare Year 5 pupil Advita - nicknamed Sid - the winner, with Mr Tarry forced to choose between a number of "excellent" cards. Such was the standard that they are all now on display in his parliamentary office.
