A map to showcase Barking and Dagenham landmarks has been put together by youngsters.
Teenagers from the borough have worked with London Metropolitan University to create a map of the area as well as a website with videos, audio recordings, photos and more to showcase Barking and Dagenham.
Barking Abbey park and the number 65 bus route both feature.
The youngsters are due to share the map at the Barking Boathouse Creative Studios on Thursday, July 22.
An anthology of short stories, diary entries and essays by young writers - entitled Build Back Better: Visions of Young People - is being launched too.
