Astronaut Tim Peake in Bristol school hook-up

Students from a Bristol school have spoken to astronaut Tim Peake aboard the International Space Station.

Among the questions from pupils at Oasis Academy Brightstowe was one from 15-year-old Seema who said she wanted to be the first female Afghan astronaut.

Major Peake told her it was a "wonderful idea and ambition" and she should "follow her dreams".

The link-up started at 14:20 GMT and lasted 10 minutes with the school using the special radio call sign GB1OAB.
