Are you fed up of party political lines and campaign trails? We’ve got an election interview with a difference.

Forget Question Time – we’ve pitted the North Devon candidates against some real interrogators: year two students at a Barnstaple primary school.

The 10 Our Lady’s School pupils threw politics to the wind to find out more about the five election hopefuls.

David Sholtz and Amy-Lou Trickey faced Conservative hopeful Peter Heaton-Jones, while Tianna Mallaband-Whitham and Blake Moore interviewed the Green’s Ricky Knight.
