Comedian Ken Dodd is helping to plant memories of success at a nursery school in Merseyside.

He will be helping plant a tree to mark East Prescot Nursery School's "outstanding" Ofsted report.

It was described as a "very special school with special staff", by the government inspectors.

Dodd will be joining pupils and staff in their celebrations on Thursday. Head teacher Louise Boyd said they were "delighted" with the visit.

The school has 60 youngsters aged 3 to 4.

Councillor Paul Clein, executive member for children's services, said: "This is a fantastic tribute to the excellent start to their educational journey that staff at East Prescot Road nursery school are giving pupils."
