Abi, 15, is a pupil at Driffield School where she is in year 10 studying music, media and French.

She said she wanted a taste of life on the Free Press to help with her media studies.

Abi said: “I have been on work experience for a week and have thoroughly enjoyed it, I have enjoyed going to court and seeing how things work around the Free Press office.

“I got along well with the team. I would like to be a journalist and photographer so coming to the Brid Free Press has been a great experience for me.

“I definitely would like to do something like this in the future.”

Abi also got to take photographs of X Factor band The Reason 4 at the launch of the Brid Bash at Bridlington Spa.

She said: “It was fantastic to take the photos and to see the interview that went on.

“I am so happy that my photos will be in the newspaper and I am thrilled that I got to go meet the band.”
