A peek behind the scenes at ITV News West Country

Young people have dropped into the ITV News West Country studios to find out about working in the media and to see what goes on behind the scenes in a busy newsroom.

It's all part of the CDN Open Day, organised by the Creative Diversity Network, to inspire more young people to pursue a career in journalism.
