Youngsters from a Leicester school have debuted a new song backing the City of Culture 2017 bid.
Children from Stoneygate College, Leicester, are hoping their song will give the city's bid a rousing send-off before it goes to the government to be considered on Monday.
The song was written by headmaster Paul Hitchcock, who wrote it using ideas from the school pupils.
