The junior winner of the Ripon Gazette/Ripon Yarns Festival Short Story competition has spent a day working at the Ripon Gazette office.

Under-18s category winner Katie Veitch, a pupil at Ripon Grammar School, spent the day helping news editor Sophie McCandlish write stories and design pages as part of her prize.

She was also presented with a book and tokens by Gill Edwards, owner of The Little Ripon Bookshop, and Sue Mackay who together organised the story-writing competition.
