Students board bus for business advice
Business-minded students got tips on becoming entrepreneurs when an enterprise bus visited their college.
Young people from Leicester College's Painter Street campus, in the city centre, spent an afternoon on the StartUp Britain bus asking questions about launching an enterprise.
Vimal Chauhan, chairman of the Federation of Small Businesses in Leicester, was among those giving out advice. He said: "We were chatting about starting up businesses and the pitfalls to avoid.

"Some of the students already had business ideas and wanted some advice on how to get those ideas to market."
The StartUp Britain campaign is run by private individuals and backed by corporations such as AXA, Dell and Intel.
It said a survey suggested a third of young people wanted to work for themselves.
The StartUp Britain enterprise bus is in the middle of a nationwide tour that will take in 40 towns and cities across the UK.
