The speaker of the House of Commons, John Bercow, was keeping pupils in order today.

He visited Saltash Community school to speak to sixth formers about life in the Commons and why he believes it's important for young people to engage in politics.

Mr Bercow said: "People in the south west feel that they are cut off disregarded, neglected, ignored and therefore quite apart from the sheer fun of coming to what is a beautiful part of the country, coming has a symbolic significance.

"Perhaps I'm showing parliament is interested."
