Local schoolchildren celebrate near the Transporter Bridge.

Children from two local primary schools gathered at the Tees Transporter Bridge ahead of the weekend's centenary festivities after winning a competition to design the flags and bunting on display around the iconic structure.

Pupils from Middlesbrough's Linthorpe Primary School, which is also celebrating its centenary, were joined by children from High Clarence Primary School, situated in Port Clarence, just a stone's throw from the bridge.

The winning children were Matthew Hickson and sisters Emily and Ann Mae Collighan, from High Clarence, together with Linthorpe's Sophia Trow, Jess Houliston, Noah Rowe, Jamie Atkinson, Grace Cong, Stan Collins, Nancy Dryden, James McDonough,Shannon Crossman and Javeria Rafique.

Pupils from Linthorpe School will be joining more than 850 children and young people in a carnival parade from 6pm on Sunday, setting off from Middlesbrough's Centre Square to a spectacular finale between Middlesbrough College and the old clock tower.

Pupils from both schools will also be involved in the bridge birthday party at 1.30pm on Monday. Members of the public are invited to both events.
