QUICK-WITTED green warriors pulled in hundreds of pounds after taking part in a school quiz seeking to boost recycling, and protect the environment.

Victorious children at Hunters Hall Primary, Alibon Road, Dagenham, scooped �300 for their school last week.

Runners-up were Northbury Junior, North Street, Barking, with third placed Roding Primary, Hewett Road, Dagenham, each winning �150.

Thirty children from six primary schools took part in the Barking and Dagenham Council organised environmental quiz at St Margaret's Primary, North Street, Barking. Hunters Hall winner Danielle Odago said: "Recycling bins are used in our class, and we work on a recycling project in year six.

"We worked well as a team, and I was really happy when it was announced that our school won."

Quiz organiser Gus Nwanze - one of Barking's original street wardens - said: "It is important for children to know about how they can help the environment."
