Pupils from Thorpe took a tour of parliament and quizzed their MP on her work.

Chloe Smith, MP for Norwich North, welcomed pupils from Thorpe St Andrew High School to Westminster for a tour, where they explored the Houses of Parliament.

The pupils landed the trip after winning a public speaking competition at the school.

They then quizzed Ms Smith about her work in the constituency.

She said: 'It was a pleasure to welcome the competition winners from Thorpe St Andrew High School to Westminster and answer their questions about politics, how parliament works and about my role as an MP.
