Hundreds of school children will come together today to take part in the first day of the borough’s Community Games.

Day one of the new event will see 650 pupils from schools in Barking and Dagenham competing in eight different events at SportHouse and Mayesbrook Athletics Arena.

Tomorrow will be a repeat of today but open to families.

The Community Games comes after the council withdrew from the London Youth Games last year.

The Post is a media partner of the event.
