David Cameron feels the heat as he gets a griiling from Wembley students
Two pupils from Copland Community School visited the Prime Minister as part of a project
They might be too young to vote but it didn’t stop two students from grilling the Prime Minister and top politicians.
Khadija Zribi and Danny Fraser, both 11, from Copland Community School, in Cecil Avenue, Wembley, interviewed PM David Cameron at 10 Downing Street, deputy prime minister Nick Clegg at the Cabinet Offices, and Opposition Labour leader Ed Miliband at Portcullis House.
They worked with Martha Kearney, BBC presenter of The World at One, to learn interview techniques as part of the BBC’s School News Report project.
The theme was Our Futures and pupils’ questions included topics such as the Olympics and the Scottish Referendum.

Danny asked the politicians what they would do to stop gang culture in Brent, while Khadija talked about the loss of the Building Schools for the Future programme, which had affected Copland Community School. Khadija also asked Mr Miliband if his mum still tells him off.
Sam Draper, head of the English department, said: “This was a wonderful opportunity for our students to represent our community.”
