The year five class from William Bellamy Primary School grilled news editor Janine Rasiah about everything from what makes a good story to the paper’s circulation.

They also enjoyed a short intoduction to the intricacies of shorthand – with several admitting that they didn’t realise that journalists had it so tough.

Children from the Frizlands Lane School didn’t miss out on asking some tough questions of their own during the Q&A session, including whether they would make the front page of next week’s paper.
