A schoolboy from Cambridgeshire wears a skirt to school


A Cambridgeshire boy has worn a skirt to school in a protest against what he said was "discrimination".

Chris Whitehead, 12, was angered by rules at Impington Village College, near Cambridge, that do not allow boys to wear shorts in hot weather.

The year-8 pupil said he researched the policy, found a loophole in the rules and turned up to school in a skirt.

Following his demonstration, the school has pledged to review the policy.
