A campaign to get Lowestoft walking was officially launched at a primary school this week.

Beat the Street aims to encourage people to walk around the town and combat physical inactivity and be in with the chance of winning some money in the process.

It was launched at Northfields St Nicholas Primary School this week, helped by pupils from East Point Academy, Poplars Primary School and the Ashley Academy.

Northfields Primary School PE teacher Ollie Winram said: 'I think it's an amazing project and great for the children as well as for the local area.

'It's a brilliant way of involving the whole community and getting everyone more active.'
