Mansfield youth mayor's work experience call

Mansfield's youth mayor has called for more employers to offer work experience after youth unemployment in the town rose by 25% in a year.

Daniel Winfield, 17, said 16 to 24-year-olds in the Nottinghamshire area have been "desperate" to find work.

The government said it has launched initiatives to help 350,000 young people across the UK to get into work.
