A recent treasure hunt at Clitheroe Castle Museum has been won by a nine-year–old visitor.

Amelie Saggers, from Blackburn, was picked from 122 entries in a competition to find 18 pirates hidden at the museum.

Amelie won a goodie bag full of items from the museum shop and was presented with a winner's certificate.

County Coun. Peter Buckley, Lancashire County Council's cabinet member for community and cultural services, said: "Our themed treasure hunt for younger visitors has been very popular for a while now. It is a great way to encourage children to find out about the heritage of the local area.

"Families with children really do enjoy searching for the hidden toys and are having fun and learning at the same time."

Admission is £4-40 for adults and £3-30 for concessions. Young people aged 13 to 18 and accompanied children up to the age of 12 go free.
