PEOPLE can vote online to award a 'golden beetle' for a bug's hotel created by pupils of an East End school.

Students from Sir John Cass School in Stepney Way teamed up with

Designer Brookfield Europe and Arup, DP9, Hilson Moran Partnership to create the wildlif habitat at Postman's Park in the City.

It includes a recycled wood planter to grow traveller's joy, honeysuckle or hops and attract insects.

The designers hope it will attract stag beetles, solitary bees, butterflies, spiders, lacewings, and ladybirds.

Online voting runs until 29 June and 'Golden Beetle' awards will be presented during this summer's London Festival of Architecture.
