A 10-year-old from Ely has been nominated for a BAFTA after impressing judges with his first game design.
Hector Marriott was selected as a finalist of the nationwide
BAFTA Young Game Designers (YGD) competition.
Hector's game idea, ‘Pipeline’, is described as an innovative, problem-solving game with the aim of teaching players about the global issue of water poverty.
It also teaches what can be done to help communities who do not have access to clean water.
Hector said: “I am surprised and happy to become a Bafta YGD finalist.
"I didn't think that this would happen - this is the first game I have ever designed.
