Nicola Scholes from Sale, Greater Manchester, northwestern England dressed her 11-year-old son Liam in a grey suit for World Book Day, which celebrates reading by asking children to come to school dressed as literary characters, the Daily Telegraph newspaper reports.

Speaking on ITV’s Good Morning Britain, she said: “He’s a character that has been put out there on the television and all aspects of media…

“He walked into school yesterday and every child knew who he was.”

Lynn Nicholls, the school’s headteacher, added: “The school stands by the decision it made yesterday… The student was not excluded from taking part in any of the activities as has been wrongly reported.

“His costume was modified and he was then able to fully participate and enjoy the day with his peers.”
