The second episode of NewsHound is now out and ready to watch.

This is a fortnightly series hosted by Herts Ad reporters which explains some St Albans and Harpenden news stories in a digestible format for children.

It is designed to engage youngsters in local news and inform them about their homecity.

In the first episode, NewsHound focussed on Storm Gareth forcing the historic St Albans Market to close and the St Albans Big Cat mystery.

This week it looks at the UK’s Strongest Kid competition which is coming to St Peter’s Street this Easter. The free contest follows on from the success of UK’s Strongest Man in Verulamium Park last summer.
