Children on the Isle of Wight may join those from around the world in a Global Strike to raise awareness of climate change today (Friday).

They will gather in Newport in a bid to urge political leaders to take action.
The movement is inspired by campaigner 16-year-old Greta Thunberg from Sweden.
A rally will take place outside County Hall between 3-5pm, calling for legislation and innovations to reduce carbon emissions to net zero and for protection for wildlife habitats and countryside.
