He talked to students about the history of Barking and Dagenham and how the Council works. MPC student Molly said: 'I found it really interesting to see the emphasis placed on women’s rights. It was motivating.
'Then we met the Mayor and his chauffeur and they showed us some of the uniform that a chauffeur and Mayor have to wear. It was a very interesting afternoon and I learnt a lot.'
