Brent Council and recycling and waste firm Veolia have announced the winner of the #BinItForBrent poster competition.

Nine-year-old Aqsa's winning entry will be displayed across seven parks.

The #BinItForBrent competition asked school children to design a poster to discourage littering in parks and public spaces.

Aqsa was awarded the top prize for her creative masterpiece, which called on park users to protect the planet.
