A GROUP of young carers from the East End took a break from their daily responsibilities to enjoy a top West End show.
Around 30 children and young people and their families went to see the musical Wicked at the London Apollo Theatre in Victoria.
The trip was organised by the Tower Hamlets Young Carers' Group, which provides support and activities for young carers in the borough aged between eight and 18.
It was a chance for them to socialise with other young carers and, for many of them, it was their first trip to a West End musical.

The council's lead members for children Cllr Abdul Asad said: "It's important that young carers have the chance to do the things that other young people without responsibilities can easily do.
"The Young Carers' Group is a vital resource for them, and what's even better is that the young people are the ones that are driving the group. After all, they know best what they want and need.
