Budding journalists of the future took to the airwaves on BBC Radio Cambridgeshire as they became news hounds for the day.

Pupils from Neale-Wade Academy were invited to the station as part of the BBC School Report, which nationally gives 60,000 pupils aged 11-18 the chance to see how reporters and presenters work.

They gave live weather reports into ‘Mann in the morning’ with Chris Mann, as well as sharing their enthusiasm for journalism with March reporter John Devine.

The BBC School Report aims to educate and inform young people about the news and the world around them by giving them the opportunity to produce their own reports.

It allows students to inform a real audience about the subjects and stories that matter to them via BBC programmes and platforms.
