Pupils from a school in Radlett rapped their way to success in Autism’s Got Talent.

Alan Johnson, 14, Ciaran Fox, 13, Ahmed Mitten, 15, and Jonathan Senga, 15, from Radlett Lodge School performed as the "Radlett Rappers" in the competition, which Anna Kennedy OBE,  founded to showcase the "diverse and superb talents" of people on the autism spectrum.

Heather Mobbs, a teacher at Radlett Lodge school, said: "Alan is very good at organising them and taking the lead. He has a lot of useful suggestions on how to improve the performance and he is excellent at helping them to feel relaxed and less nervous."

Ciaran said: "I entered because it sounded really fun. I enjoy performing because I get to do things with my friends."

Jonathan said: "I entered because it can change my life by making me more confident. I like performing because it makes me feel good about myself."

The competition took place at The Mermaid Theatre in London last Saturday.
