YOUNGSTERS from across County Durham will meet councillors, police and youth workers today to advise them on services for young people.
Children from 11 schools and youth groups will discuss issues such as public transport, anti-bullying and sexual health.

In the swim
A GROUP of Northumberland cubs and scouts more than doubled their fundraising target at a 48-hour sponsored swim.
Volunteer staff kept Willowburn Leisure centre at Alnwick open for 48 hours to allow the swim to continue non-stop from Friday to Sunday, to raise money for victims of the tsunami disaster.
The pounds 1,000-plus raised will go directly to Scout Groups for regeneration work in the areas affected by the tsunami.
