Inspirational teenagers from a secondary school were honoured at the The British Academy of Film and Television Arts after winning an anti-smoking film competition.

The UK-wide competition – supported by Archant, publishers of The Reporter – was run by the Deborah Hutton Campaign through its Cut Films project.

The six students aged between 14 and 15 at St John’s Catholic Comprehensive School, Gravesend, won the category for People’s Choice for their two-minute short film called Till Death Do Us Part.

Student filmmaker Paola Esposito said: “We just tried our best but had so much fun at the same time.”

The campaign was set up in memory of Deborah Hutton, who died from lung cancer, aged 49, in 2004.
