Max, 18, a student at Brine Leas, told Nantwichnews: “I just thought you don’t get the opportunity to talk to such figures very often so I wanted to take my chance.

“It’s rare that this happens in modern day politics so it felt right to approach and ask him questions.”

Max, from Audlem, is hoping to go to Liverpool University in September to study Politics.

“Yes, politics is what I will be looking to pursue a career in,” Max added.

Mr Timpson is competing for the Crewe & Nantwich seat on June 8 against Labour’s Laura Smith, David Crowther of Liberal Democrats and Michael Stanley of UK Independence Party.
