  • Watch Claire Manning's report

Boris Johnson was put firmly through his paces just hours before meeting US President Joe Biden - after stopping off at a nearby primary school.

The Prime Minister was quizzed by pupils at St Issey Primary School in Wadebridge on a range of topics including the environment, cars and gardening.

All of the hard-hitting subjects you would expect before meeting the most powerful political leader in the world.

He was given a thorough tour of the school’s grounds and vegetable plots by confident Beatrix, who showed the Prime Minister how to properly water a plant.

Speaking after he had departed, Beatrix admitted she would quite like to be Prime Minister one day.

“If I was a Prime Minister, I would teach everybody how to make the world a better place,” she said.
