WARWICK Castle played host to children from Chernobyl.
The 24 youngsters from Belarus – who grew up near the Ukraine site of the 1980s nuclear power plant disaster - were welcomed to Warwick by mayor Elizabeth Higgins.
Warwick Rotary Club organised the visit and the children enjoyed clambering up the ramparts, watching knights jousting, eagles flying and learning the skills of archery,
The children from the region of the disater are brought to England each year by the charity Chernobyl Children’s Project UK. During a month they are taken to the seaside, into the country and have medical checks and treatment.
Many children have lost their parents, who died prematurely from radiation-related conditions, and now suffer from related health problems.
