A council worker in South Wales has helped a school "eco-committee" set up a wooden log cabin.

John Hall, 53, who lives in Llanmartin and works as a CCTV operator for Newport council, helped to create a potting shed for the committee by cutting wood into panels and by teaching pupils how to drill and screw the panels together, the South Wales Argus reported.

His help came at the request of his granddaughter, Emily, who is a member of Llanmartin Primary School's eco-committee.

According to the newspaper, Mr Hall spent a week cutting around 100 fir trees of up to 60ft in height down from a relative's garden with a chainsaw before donating the wood to the school.

"Everything about the shed is recycled and the children have learnt some useful skills," he said of the log cabin which measures six feet in length by four feet wide and six feet high.
