Kids campaigning to protect the planet "should be listened to"

The Environment Secretary has said children who skipped school to protest about climate change should be listened to.

Kids across the UK walked out of lessons last month, inspired by young people elsewhere in Europe.

Although Michael Gove said children should be in school, he said the marches prove how much young people are concerned about the planet.

He said the protests send a message to older generations to "clean it up".
