Sproughton schoolchildren were surprised by a 'Zoom bomb' as BBC Radio 1 DJ and soul singer Rag’n’Bone Man joined their online music workshop.

Pupils at Sproughton Church of England Primary School were taking part in their normal Key Stage 2 music workshop on Friday when the pair made a surprise appearance.

Music teacher Holly Milgate arranged for the DJ and singer to drop into the call, which left the five students taking part "absolutely shocked".

The lucky five chosen to take part were Year 6 pupil Zak Booth, Year 5 children James Palfrey, Paige Brown and Tiapreet Kaur and Year 3's Eva Andrews, though other students were also watching the call.

James spoke to them about contemporary and acapella music and Rag’n’Bone Man – topics they are currently learning about – before the singer showed his face.
