THE first ladies of British politics visited Basildon to inspire young women to aim high.

Samantha Cameron, wife of Prime Minister David Cameron, and lawyer Miriam Gonzalez Durantez, wife of Deputy Prime Minister Nick Clegg, were two of ten high profile business women who attended a special event at Basildon Upper Academy this morning.

BBC sports presenter Clare Balding also had one-on-one discussions with pupils at the school to help them believe anything is possible.

Stephen Metcalfe, MP for South Basildon and East Thurrock lent his support to the event and said: “It was a very impressive display of opportunities for pupils and a very exciting atmosphere.

“To come to Basildon and inspire girls here is amazing.”
