Would YOU vote for a teenager? Natalie Bowyer asked electors in Huntingdon.

William and Eileen Tomlins, retired, from Huntingdon, pictured top right, said: "Yes, why wouldn't we vote for a teenager as long as they have some common sense."

Rosemary Williamson retired from Huntingdon said: "It would depend on their policies. I would vote for a person if I agreed with their policies. I guess she will be putting the youth policies at the forefront of her campaign so where would that leave the rest of us?"

Noemie Green, 27, a full-time mother of two from Brampton, left, said: "I think she is a bit too young to understand and represent us fully. But if that is what she wants then she should go for it but I won't be voting for her as I do not see the need to vote."
