As the inquest into England's Rugby World Cup exit continues, a school in Hounslow has been honoured for doing its bit to inspire the next generation of stars.

Cranford Community College has received a 'Gold Standard' award for introducing pupils to the sport, which is flourishing there.

The school is one of just 15 out of 400 involved with the Rugby Football Union's (RFU) All Schools programme to achieve the mark.

Rugby World Cup winner and RFU president Jason Leonard visited the school in Cranford on Thursday (October 1) to meet its young players and present the award.
