Thousands of young people have walked out of lessons today in protest, calling on the government to take further action on climate change.
Joining a national activity across the country. London students defied threats of detention to march on Westminster calling for better education on the environment in schools, a lowering of the voting age and a state emergency to be called.
In response the Department for Education said that the government was already a world leader when it comes to climate change. Adding,
"We know there is strong public feeling about climate change, and everyone wants young people to be engaged in the issues that affect them most so that we can build a brighter future for all of us. But missing school only disrupts lessons and adds to teachers' workloads."
