Mountain of rocks - money well spent?

Thomas Willingale school in Loughton have spent nearly £30,000 on the 3 metre high mountain of granite boulders.

Some parents say it's a waste of money but the Essex school argue the rocks will help them teach pupils about geography and the environment.

The headteacher there's also told Heart, none of the money used to pay for the mountain came from parents.
