A Ponteland teenager got a taste of politics at the highest level when she visited London.

Harriet Barrett, who was invited by local MP Guy Opperman, pictured with her, was joined by young women from sixth forms across the country as the purpose of the day was to try and encourage more young women to engage with politics.

The Year 13 student at Ponteland High School enjoyed her trip to Westminster, which included tours of Number 10 Downing Street and the House of Commons and tea in the Speaker’s Apartments.
