Politicians, students and other local movers and shakers came together for a lively Question Time debate at St Christopher's Sixth Form Centre last Friday, for the conclusion of Local Democracy Week.
A panel, including A Level student Cameron Stewart, Leader of Hyndburn Council, Cllr Miles Parkinson, Hyndburn's MP, Graham Jones, Chief Executive of Accrington Stanley Football Club, Rob Heyes, and Chief Inspector Julian Platt faced a barrage of questions from the St Christopher's pupils.
The questions covered a whole range of subjects including the media, health and safety, high university fees and the summer disturbances around the country.
Council Leader, Cllr Miles Parkinson said "Local Democracy week brings together our elected politicians with future generations of electors. The Question Time event went really well, we had a lively and interesting debate on a wide range of topics."
