A Denby schoolgirl has prompted health chiefs to do something about smoking outside a major hospital after the youngster wrote to them to complain.

Freya-Elise Oldfied, 10, who is a pupil at Denby School wrote to bosses at the Royal Derby Hospital after she was disappointed to see people smoking outside the entrances to the city venue.

And the hospital decided to get Freya and her school pals to design posters to tell visitors the building and its grounds were smoking-free zones, and they will now go on display.
