Southwark school tackles spread of colds and flu

A primary school in Southwark is taking part in a challenge to help reduce the spread of disease.

Pupils from the school have become 'Handy Helpers' and have been taught the importance of washing your hands.

It's all in a bid to reduce the 22 million school days that are lost to colds and flu every year.

London Live spoke to pupils and the headteacher from Peter Hills With St Mary's & St Paul's Primary School, and the NHS's Dr Ellie Cannon.
