More than 37,000 young people in Norfolk have voted in this year’s record-breaking Youth Parliament elections.

It is almost three times the amount of 11 to 18-year-olds who voted in the same elections in 2012.

Nine young people are celebrating their first day in office, including Harvey Monck, 15, from Old Buckenham High School, who amassed 1,403 votes and will represent South West Norfolk, while South Norfolk’s representative is 11-year-old Jacob Rhodes, from Framlingham Earl High School, who scored 1,502 votes.
