Islington pupils fly to US to meet Michelle Obama


America's First Lady first became acquainted with students at Elizabeth Garrett Anderson School in Islington three years ago on an official visit to the UK and since then the bond has only got stronger.

Now, 12 pupils from the north London school are jetting off to see Michelle Obama at the White House for a trip of a lifetime.

The BBC's Nick Beake talks to Gamze and Khadija who are two of the lucky 12 flying out to Washington.
