Honiton Community College students given a guided tour of Parliament.

Young people from Honiton were able to tread the famous halls of Westminster and share their views with local Members of Parliament.

The sixth form politics and history students from Honiton Community travelled to London for a special guided tour of the House of Parliament.

They were also given the opportunity to meet Honiton and Tiverton MP Neil Parish and ask him questions on local and political issues.

The students then met Exeter MP Ben Bradshaw, who was given a grilling on subjects like the direction of the Labour Party.

Six students were then invited to the House of Commons chamber where they listened to a statement made by the Home Secretary Teresa May.
