SHEFFIELD’S latest budding politicians have been elected by more than 10,000 of their peers in the city’s elections to the UK Youth Parliament.

A total of 18 young people stood for election and six were successful.

The winners representing the east of the city are Daniel Smith, aged 15, from Birley School, and Ryan Pickergill, 13, a pupil at Handsworth Grange, who was voted Daniel’s deputy.

Sam Harden, 13, of Bradfield School, will represent the north of Sheffield with Tameka Miller, 14, of Stocksbridge School, his deputy.

Amaka Uchegbu, 17, of Sheffield High School, and Sally Scrivener, 15, also of Sheffield High School, who was voted Amaka’s deputy, will represent the West.

All 18 young people received a certificate for involvement. The 12 unsuccessful candidates will become part of a new UK Youth Parliament Advisory Group.
