Tributes have been paid to the man who created Newsround. Edward Barnes, who came up with the idea for the programme, has died at the age of 92.

Mr Barnes also helped create Blue Peter and became Head of Children’s Television.

He came up with the idea for a news bulletin for children when he realised that there weren’t many children watching the news.
