A Lichfield schoolboy has had his design chosen for the latest cover of The Big Issue.

Joe Evans drew a dinosaur-themed picture which beat off competition to grace the magazine’s festive edition.

The eight-year-old’s ‘Happy Rexmas’ design beat off hundreds of other entries to win the contest.

A spokesperson for the magazine said: “Dinosaurs in Santa hats that are just a little too small – and a cracking coverline pun.

“To Joe we say, bravo!”
