Three pupils from Kaizen Primary School, Elkington Road, Plaistow, interviewed editor Michael Adkins, met staff and found out about the art of shorthand.

Jenna Mwila and Amir Karimov, both 11, and Annis Coulton, nine, were joined by their teacher Allison Carvalho and colleague Alice Bird on Wednesday.

They will now write about their visit for the July edition of Kaizen Voice, the newspaper produced by children at the school.
