Easton and Otley College says it’s determined to reclaim its crown next year after narrowly missing out on its third win in a row at a crop growing challenge.

The college was up against six other finalists in a Cereals 2016 contest which involved growing a crop of peas. It came second, Bishop Burton came first, and Harper Adams was third.

Lecturer Tony Wilson said: “I’m very proud of what the students have done. They went for it in a bid to win and worked very hard.”

He added: “It just makes us even more determined to come back stronger next year.”
