East London students hire supercars for graduation

Students in part of east London graduated in style today after hiring high power supercars for the day.

Aged 16, they are too young to drive them. But chauffeurs were on hand to help the students make a rare road trip for their National Record of Achievement ceremony. The cars included a Mercedes, Ferrari and Lamborghini.

It was part of Swanlea Secondary School graduation day in Tower Hamlets.
