A DOUGLAS Ewart High School pupil has been welcomed into Holyrood for work experience this week.

Alexandra White, 14, joined LibDem MSP for south of Scotland Jim Hume to see how things work in parliament.

Mr Hume said:“Getting young people involved in the democratic process is immensely important and I’m glad Alexandra decided to use her work experience in my office.

“There are many aspects to politics from becoming a politician or broadcast journalist to the behind the scenes roles of research, policy and press so I hope Alexandra got a good idea of how all of these things work in practice.”
