Youth Parliament results: Great Yarmouth

Today nine college and school pupils began their work as Members of Youth Parliament (MYP).

Great Yarmouth MYP is Sarah Freestone, 16, from East Norfolk Sixth Form College, Great Yarmouth.

Manifesto: 'I would like to see many more young people become active and interested in political affairs, because I feel I am a candidate from the average person who can re-engage young people and show them that politics isn't for the elite, but everyone. I would also like to work with my MP and councillors to get more facilities in villages and towns for the youth, as the anti-social behaviour is usually caused by boredom and frustration at the stereotyping of our generation.'
