Pupils from a Sidcup school got the chance to put their questions to their MP when he visited them for a round of golf.

The head boy and head girl of Burnt Oak Junior School grilled James Brokenshire, who was visiting to congratulate the primary school on its Ofsted 'outstanding' rating.

The secretary of state for housing, communities and local government presented the newly-elected pupils with their badges and challenged their putting skills - before they had the chance to quiz him.

Among the questions put to the MP for Old Bexley and Sidcup was to ask for advice on how best to represent people.

Mr Brokenshire said: "Listen carefully to what others say. Always approach things with an open mind.

"Remember to consider different points of view when making a decision."

The election of a new head boy and head girl was carried out as part of the school's celebration of International Democracy Day.
