Teens' protest.

Youngsters have handed in a petition calling for better youth services in their area.

Roberta Blackman-Woods, Labour's prospective Parliamentary candidate for Durham City, was given the signatures by Natalie Stones and Kimberly Donnelly, of Brandon, near Durham, who formed an action group.

The teenagers have been supported by Mrs Blackman-Woods, local councillors and the Brandon Residents Group.

The next stage of the campaign is to identify how services can be put into place. They will meet with The County Council, Youth Service, CDYES and the police.

Ms Blackman-Woods said: "It is encouraging to see young people campaigning for their area and putting ideas forward."
