The 25 young ambassadors were invited to the Town Hall to meet Preston mayor coun Trevor Hart.

Harking from Nîmes, Preston’s twin city in the Occitanie region of southern France, the students are on a trip to look into what impact of Brexit might be on the relationship between the two countries.

Organiser Monika Oszmaniec said: “We are particularly interested in our post-Brexit relationship with the UK, what are the perspectives for continuing mobility programmes and exchanges, what are the feelings at the British side.
