YOUNG carers in Bolton were delighted to receive a visit from the Greater Manchester Mayor Andy Burnham.

Deb Robinson of Healthwatch Bolton who help set up the meeting, said: "They and their parents said it was fantastic. They see someone in authority taking the time out to speak to them."

Mr Burnham listened to the children's stories, how they care for their parents and siblings and offered advice.

In return the children gave Mr Burnham a masterclass in the "floss"dance.
