Staff and students at De Aston School in Market Rasen were among those who got well and truly into the spirit of World Book Day, with a variety of activities taking place.

Staff rose to the occasion by dressing up as their favourite character from a novel for the day and at lunch time, the library was full of action with a World Book Day quiz.
