SUFFOLK Coastal MP Dr Therese Coffey dropped in to spend time with students.

The visit to Alde Valley School’s sixth form, in Leiston, was part of Parliament Week.

Dr Coffey said: “As the local MP, it is important for me to talk to young people about our democratic institutions and I thoroughly enjoyed my visit.
