Library picture dated 15/04/97 of nine month old James Austin being kissed by Labour Party leader Tony Blair during a walkabout at The Broadway, Crawley. James, now 5, handed a letter to Cherie Booth, at the famous door of 10 Downing Street, London, Monday 22 July 2002. He has written a letter to ask for his school, Three Bridges First School, Crawley in West Sussex, to be saved from a cost cutting merger.
