Young volunteers have teamed up with Age UK to help older people get to grips with their computers.

OPEN Youth Trust in Norwich is running a series of IT classes from next month for the older generation.

It is aimed at helping people stay in touch with families, shop online or carry out research on the internet.

The classes will also teach people how to edit photos, and provide advice on using laptops and tablets.

Charlie Harbord-Bye, one of OPEN's young volunteers who has previously been involved in delivering the IT sessions, said: 'It's been great fun to be able to share my knowledge with the older generation. '
