"We're giving up our own time today, but we've previously gone on strike from college because there's no point going to lessons if the future you're studying for doesn't exist."

The marchers are planning to head down East Reach, back up to Paul Street, High Street and up Corporation Street to High Street again, where they are planning to stage a 'die in' by lying down on the ground.

The youngest marcher is Isaac Welch, aged eight, from Othery, who said: "I want to save the planet and don't want to be gloomy. I want it to be bright."
