We talked to local people about climate change and what they think should be done to tackle it.

The 27th United Nations climate change conference is almost here and will bring together government officials from across the world to discuss and agree on how to address global warming. The 2022 United Nations Climate Change Conference - more commonly referred to as the Conference of the Parties of the UNFCCC, or COP27 - will be taking place in Sharm El Sheikh in Egypt between 6 November and 18.

The Conference of the Parties is the most significant decision-making forum on the planet when it comes to the climate, and it brings world leaders and those with the power to effect change together to discuss how to tackle and address the main global warming issues.

With a week to go until COP27 gets under way we spoke to people in Manchester to find out their concerns about climate change and whether they think more should be done to tackle it.
