Teenagers share their general election views

Teenagers in Devon and Cornwall have shared their views on the upcoming general election and what matters to them.

Speaking about the Conservatives' plan to introduce national service, they said they did not believe it should be mandatory.

They also felt being forced to volunteer once a month, the proposed alternative to doing national service, would not be beneficial either.

There were also mixed opinions over whether the age people could be allowed to vote should be lowered from 18 to 16.
