Politically-minded students in Norfolk gathered to grill politicians at a panel debate in Norwich.
The event at Notre Dame High School (NDHS) on Friday saw students from the school joined by others from Wymondham High Academy, Norwich School, Hewett Academy, Langley School and Sir Isaac Newton to hear from the speakers and ask their questions.
The panel was made up of Andrew Wiltshire, of Norwich Conservatives, Maria Aickin and professor Catherine Rowett, from Norwich Green party, Lorne Green, police and crime commissioner for Norfolk, Jonathan Isaby, editor at Brexit Central, Clive Lewis, MP for Norwich South, and Patrick O'Flynn, MEP for the east of England.
The event, organised by NDHS deputy head student Isobel Keane, saw students quiz the panel on Brexit, youth employment, young people's vote and the public sector pay cap.
