Cricketing legend Brian Lara visited Stonyhurst College when some of the senior cricket squad had the privilege of meeting him.

He holds records including that for the highest individual score in first-class cricket, with 501 not out for Warwickshire against Durham at Edgbaston in 1994. It was the only quintuple hundred in first-class cricket history.

Perhaps his most famous achievement is the record for the highest individual test cricket score of 400 not out.

Mr Lara visited Stonyhurst to discuss plans for a possible cricket tour to Trinidad in 2015, with the headmaster Andrew Johnson and director of sport

Simon Charles. Pupils then gave him a tour of the college.
