Year 7 students at a secondary school were treated to a visit from an author who spoke about his latest novel.

Dan Freedman, best known for the Jamie Johnson book series, visited Debden Park High School, Loughton, where all pupils received a copy of his new book, 'Unstoppable'.

'Unstoppable' is Freedman’s first young adult novel which follows twins Katie and Roxy attempt to achieve their aspirations within the world of sport.

Mr Freedman gave an assembly to the students discussing his experiences as a sports journalist, writer and editor-in-chief for the FA.

The author met with the school’s football team and Year 7 students took part in a creative writing competition inspired from his sports stories.

Winners got to meet Mr Freedman up close and personal and received a signed copy of the book.
