As the seventh BBC School Report News Day began, the project's editor Helen Shreeve was interviewed on BBC London's breakfast show and told Paul Ross the purpose behind the project.

She explains what both students and staff get from the annual event and reveals how the work done by pupils across the UK can influence the stories which the BBC reports throughout the year.
