A Wimbledon boy has been named St Pancras International’s 2019 poet laureate.

Fin Perry beat out thousands of entrants with his poem 'The Corridor' to be named as the winner of the 13th Betjeman Poetry Prize.

The annual Betjeman Poetry Prize attracts entries from talented 10-13-year olds across the UK - all competing to impress the judges with their writing skills.

Fin joins previously celebrated young poets including 12-year-old Ide Crawford and Amineh Abou Kerech, 13.

Wendy Spinks, commercial director at HS1 Ltd. (owners of St Pancras International), said: “We’re always delighted to host the annual Betjeman Poetry Prize ceremony which is a fitting tribute to the poet, Sir John Betjeman, who saved the station from demolition in the 1960s.

"We congratulate the winner of this year’s prize, Fin Perry, as he becomes the new St Pancras Poet Laureate for 2019-2020.

"Fin will be creating poetry especially for St Pancras throughout the year and we’re very much looking forward to displaying them in the station and across our online channels for our national and international audiences to enjoy. Keep an eye out for their fantastic work.”
