This photograph, taken by two nine-year-old girls in Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park, has been selected to feature in a book illustrating life in the UK.

This is Britain, which has been created to support Children in Need, features 300 amateur photographs taken over a long weekend in October.

The picture, selected from thousands, was taken as part of inspired:arts, a project by arts charity Create where young carers aged eight to 17 explored the history and architecture of the park.

Hasanga Rana, senior young carers worker at Family Action Newham Young Carers Service, said: “Create’s photography sessions have been a tremendous opportunity for the young carers to interact with each other. It’s a chance for them to explore and learn about their community, and to be part of a group.”

Copies of the book cost £25 from thisisbritain.me, with all profits going to Children in Need.
