Children from Longsight Community Primary School in Manchester take over Big Issue North this week, producing news and features for other young people to enjoy – and grown-ups as well. ⁠

They interview George Webster, the upbeat and inspiring children’s TV presenter, who tells them why having Down’s Syndrome does not stop him doing anything.⁠

Patrick, a Manchester-based Big Issue North vendor, tells his year five interviewers what it’s like to sell the magazine and about his hopes for the future.⁠

Pupils from as far afield as Somalia, Iraq, Nepal and Spain recount coming to the UK and explain what it means to them to have a home, and Horrid Henry author Francesca Simon reveals her plans for her next books – about Terrible Vikings.⁠
