An eight-year-old from Cambridgeshire has gone viral online after releasing a video message to people during the ongoing coronavirus pandemic.
Mea Howcroft’s message for residents to stay inside their homes has had more than 8,500 views on Facebook since it was released on March 24 from her Manea home.
Spelling with Mea was created after the Glebelands pupil decided she wanted to “create a video that was educational” and one that “sent a message to everyone”.
Deanna Howcroft, Mea’s mum, said: “Due to the school closures we asked the children to have a think about something that they wanted to learn more about and/or achieve during their time off.
“Mea’s choice of project was to create a video that was educational and sent a message to everyone in the current circumstances and also to go viral!
