YOU voted in the UK Youth Parliament elections – and now a new batch of youngsters will fight for your rights.

Four new representatives have been elected to represent Dorset on the UKYP.

They are Grace van Zyl, aged 13, James Jones, 13, Owen Shepherd, aged 11 and Cerys Pumphrey, aged 16.

As well as taking part in the national and regional sittings, they will work to deliver their own manifestos and will sit on the Dorset Youth Council.

The UK Youth Parliament is a national organisation that gives young people aged 11 to 18 a voice on national issues that affect them.
