TEJAS DATTANI, 15, has been elected as Ealing’s sixth youth mayor. He is a student at Featherstone High School, Southall.

James Panton, 19, from the Acton campus of Ealing, Hammersmith and West London College was named deputy youth mayor.

During his campaign, Tejas pledged to improve homelessness among young people, create an accessible work experience database and raise awareness of Ealing’s youth centres.

He competed against 10 other candidates during a two-week campaign in which they visited schools and youth centres to rally support and persuade youngsters to give them their vote.

In total, more than 2,000 young people from across the borough went to polling booths or voted online for their favourite candidate.

Tejas said: "I look forward to working to make a change for young people across Ealing.”
