A SNEAK peek inside the corridors of Westminster was offered to Weston students during their visit to the Houses of Parliament.

Five politics students from Weston College travelled to London as guests of Dr Liam Fox, Conservative MP for North Somerset.

The MP took the group on a full tour of the palace of Westminster and they were able to sit in both the Commons and the Lords, and enjoyed a spell on the famous outdoor terrace.

James Holtby, aged 16, one of the A-level students on the visit, said: “It was a really interesting experience learning about the political system of the UK and the real life of an MP. I would recommend it to anyone.”
