Hundreds of schoolchildren were joined by other demonstrators for the latest Youth Strike march through Brighton calling for more action on climate change.

Buses were diverted and traffic delayed as the throng assembled in Churchill Square and then made their way down to the seafront.

The two previous Youth Strike marches, inspired by the example of 15-year-old Swedish student Greta Thunberg, took place in Brighton on 15 February and 15 March.

An estimated 3,000 people took part in the second demonstration.

    How many of these children have parents who repair their clothes or knit them jumpers. How many catch the bus or walk to school every day. How many of them have foreign holidays flying in aircraft that helps to pollute our skies. Climate change starts with personal changes not preaching to everyone about their faults. Unless you are doing utmost to follow what you ask others to do you cannot preach.
