Autistic pupils at a Radlett specialist school have completed a media project in which they created an episode for a new soap opera.

Radlett Lodge School, of Harper Lane, is an independent residential special school that supports 55 pupils with autism, aged four to 19-years-old.

Ten pupils created an episode for Riverscross, a soap opera created from the characters and storylines developed by young people, as part of the Spanner in the Works workshops.

Deputy Principal, Lisa Camilleri, said: "This media project has given our students a fantastic platform to showcase their creativity and produce something amazing.

"Autism is a lifelong and disabling condition, but these budding soap producers show that with the right support, people with autism can flourish."
