A Bristol scout leader is being given a volunteering award by the Prime Minister. Amir Cheema has given up his spare time to encourage young Muslims to become part of the Scout movement.

He's formed nearly 50 troops himself across the UK, and was inspired to get involved after seeing how much his children enjoyed scouting.
